S.Hairston Kroger to Get Major Makeover

The store, open for nearly 26 years, had its last renovation in 1999.

The on S. Hairston Road in Stone Mountain will get a makeover in 2012, intended to create a "brighter, fresher" look, a spokesman said Wednesday.

The store at 1232 S. Hairston Rd., which opened in May 1986, will get renovations estimated at more than $1 million, including a new entrance to the store, change to the interior decor and new shelving.

The plans also involve raising the ceiling, which "creates a fresher look and an open atmosphere," said Glynn Jenkins, director of communication and public relations for The Kroger Co., Atlanta division.

The work is slated to begin in January and is expected to be complete by early spring, Jenkins said. It's been 12 years since the store was last remodeled.

This store added a fuel center about a year ago. Should be interesting to see how these renovations impact the area.

I stop going to that Krogers because, it is not as nice as the Tucker one. When they can offer the same services as Tucker and be as nice and clean I will come back. What gets me with these stores is they think they know their community and they try to taylor their business to what they think the community wants. When they do that they lose the other half of the community that is not what they thought they were and those are the people they probably would like to keep. The Basics for every business is good customer service and cleanliness inside and outside.
