Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Leaders with Kroger opened the second Kroger Marketplace Thursday morning at the Village of Coventry with an official ribbon cutting.

Just like the Dupont Kroger Marketplace, there is a mix of general merchandise: bed and bath, toys, kitchenware, household décor, furniture, household appliances and a Fred Meyer Jewelers.

Many are still wondering, what will happen to the "old" Kroger store across the street?

Kroger Public Affairs Manager John Elliott says, “Typically what happens, and the same thing happened on Spy Run and Decatur Road and stores that we closed...if we own it, then we put it up for sale. If it's leased, then a discussion with the landlord preceded the decision to close the store."

The new Kroger Marketplace is open 24-7.
