Kroger and NewQuest Properties have completed a deal that will bring the first Kroger Marketplace to the Lake Conroe area in 2011. The shopping center, to be called Sam Houston Town Center, will be located at the northwest corner of Interstate 45 and F.M. 1097. The 123,000- square-foot Kroger Marketplace will anchor the Center and it will include 25,000 square feet of retail space and six pad sites.
The Marketplace store will offer features unique to a Kroger Signature store along with an expanded variety of grocery and deli products, gourmet and chef-prepared foods, a wine shop, large floral section and fuel center. The Kroger Marketplace will offer linens for the bathroom and other areas of the home, a Kitchen Place area with upscale kitchenware and place settings, and the latest toys for purchase. The Nature’s Market section will offer all-natural and organic products and of course the drive- through pharmacy will provide consumers with $4 generic drugs. A Fred Meyer Jeweler store, as well as a large home-furnishing section with Ashley Brand furniture will be offered at the new Kroger Marketplace that is coming soon to the Lake Conroe area.
