Kroger renovation taking shape
That picture right there of the interior of the Kroger at West 11th and North Shepherd, was submitted from a reader of the blog Swamplot (and if you live inside the Loop and don't read Swamplot, why then and for what are you waiting?).
My favorite part from the Swamplot post linked above is the tidbit that even though the store renovations are not yet finished, that Kroger's (well known as "Ghetto Kroger" and other not-so-nice names through the years) is already the largest grocery store in the city limits. I think I remember reading somewhere that when this is all done, that Kroger will be the largest grocery store west of the Mi(crooked letter, crooked letter)i(crooked letter, crooked letter)i(humpback, humpback)i River. And how can you tell that I'm a native Houstonian? Because I get all geeked up about something stupid like that!
I personally am thrilled about all of these developments. I remember going to that place back in the day before it got turned into a Signature Store and walking out wondering if the Heights will ever be able to support quality establishments (I was young. It was the 1980s. What can I say?). To see it now and think about those days is amazing, and unfortunately, makes me feel old! :What do you think? Have you been into the store? Remember the bad old days? Can't wait to go? Wondering what the heck the hubbub is all about?
