Via Jacksonville Daily Record
Kroger plans to start offering home delivery services using trucks.

Midwest grocery company Kroger is building-out a logistics operation in North Jacksonville to deliver fresh groceries.

Kroger Fulfillment Network LLC, part of Cincinnati-based The Kroger Co., is the tenant for a 62,208-square-foot space at 1 Imeson Park Blvd., No. 200, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

The project is described as a cross-dock for mercantile goods, which means goods are brought in and quickly shipped out to their destination.

The city issued a permit May 11 for Caddell Construction Co. LLC of Jacksonville to build-out the space at a cost of $205,000.

Luckett & Farley Architects, Engineers and Interior Designers of Louisville, Kentucky, is the architect.

Kroger spokesperson Teresa Dickerson acknowledged the plans late afternoon May 12 and wants to provide more information when available. 

"We are so excited about the Jacksonville Market," she said by email.
