The new Kroger Marketplace in Oak Ridge will open this weekend.

The new store is different from other marketplace locations in our area. In addition to a full grocery store, the Kroger also features clothing, shoes and accessories for the whole family.

The store is also energy efficient with skylights, LED lights and a water conversation initiative. It also created 270 new jobs for the community.

The store opens to the public at 8 o'clock Sunday morning.

There will be live bands, discounts and an autograph session with former UT head football coach Phillip Fulmer.
