Kroger in Town Plaza

This picture of Kroger on the west side of the Town Plaza Shopping Center was taken sometime near its grand opening on Aug. 11, 1960. Top Value Stamps is next door. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)

In 1969, a newly-built Kroger Family Center opened at 2001 Independence.

In 1970, Roth Stores, a retail clothing chain of eight stores, signed a 17-year lease with the Kroger Co. on its former property in the Town Plaza.

Other Town Plaza stores included Town Plaza Coin Wash, Key Rexall Drugs, W.T. Grant Co., Hahn's Shoes, Woolworth's and Gambles.

Here is a previous blog about Kroger on Broadway.

  • I would like to remind viewers that William St. in front of the Town Plaza shopping center stopped at Highway 61 or Kingshighway. Remember?
