POWELL - A new Kroger Marketplace opened in Powell on Wednesday morning.
The store is the fifth Kroger Marketplace to open in the greater Knoxville area.
Inside the store hangs a mural from local artist Jonathan Howe. Kroger commissioned the work after a contest with the Art and Cultural Alliance of Knoxville.
Howe’s mural is a historic overview of the Powell region, which used to have a train track coming through the area.
The mural took Howe about a month to create.
The first 500 customers Wednesday morning received coupons for free breakfast items.
The new store is creating more than 375 new jobs.
