Kroger Opens Industrial Facility in Independence, Kentucky

by John Nelson

INDEPENDENCE, KY. — Kroger has opened a new “spoke” industrial facility in Independence that will grow the grocer’s delivery presence in Northern Kentucky. The new facility will work in concert with Kroger’s existing customer fulfillment center in Monroe, Ohio, which is roughly 45 miles north of the spoke facility via I-75. Kroger associates will assemble orders at the Monroe facility, which will then be trucked to the Independence property and sorted and shipped out to customers in refrigerated delivery vans. At full operating capacity, the Independence facility will employ 100 associates. The property is the second spoke facility in Kentucky, joining a Louisville property that opened in May 2022.
