FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Big changes are planned for the Kroger store located on St. Joe Center Rd.

Kroger recently announced they are planning a large renovation that will convert the current location to a "Marketplace" that will sell general merchandise items, as well as groceries. With the expansion comes more jobs, as the current store employs 100 people and a "Marketplace" usually employs upwards of 300 people. However, it has not been announced how many jobs can be expected to be added.

The location will become the third "Marketplace" location in Fort Wayne. There are currently Marketplaces on E. Dupont Rd. and Coventry Ln..
