New Kroger Marketplace opens in Powell

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.
