SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The largest Kroger in Georgia and the first Kroger Marketplace in Savannah will open its doors Wednesday.

The new Kroger Marketplace on Mall Boulevard in Florence Square will celebrate its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony starting at 10 a.m. on April 2; however, the store will open to the general public at 7 a.m.

The new store, which is estimated to bring 267 new jobs to the area, will offer customers more than 97,622 square feet of merchandise. 

"Kroger has served the Savannah area for more than 37 years," Glynn Jenkins was quoted saying in a news release, director of communications and public relations for Kroger's Atlanta Division. "We are incredibly excited to bring this amazing store to the community and provide our customers with an even better shopping experience."

In addition to fresh food and groceries, the new Kroger Marketplace will be a one-stop destination for home fashion and decor, bed and bath, kitchen and small appliances, home office and toys. The store will also include an apparel department, offering name brand products like Levi's, Sketchers and more.

To celebrate the new opening, Kroger will present Susan G. Komen for the Cure Coastal Georgia with a check for more than $63,500.

In addition, Kroger will also donate a $250 gift card to area schools such as STEM Academy at Bartlett, Heard Elementary School, Jenkins High School, J.G. Smith Elementary School, Calvary Baptist Day School, Memorial Day School and Oglethorpe Charter School.
