The public finally got a chance to check out the newly-renovated Kroger store at 1955 West Henderson Road in Upper Arlington late last month, following a sweeping $3.1 million renovation.

While much remains the same, Kroger hopes the updates will help to better serve their customers, while bringing a more modern look to store’s overall appearance.

Here are just a few of the changes on display at this spiffy new Kroger location:

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

  • The Chicken Co., a new quick-and-easy meal option offering fresh chicken meals and a-la-carte sides, has been added to the store’s deli section.
  • So long chrome—all cases throughout the store were replaced with sleeker, black-trimmed freezers.
  • The store’s looks in general were improved with a new décor package.
  • The perishable side, including produce, the cheese counter, the bakery, and the deli, is now more of an open concept. Maneuvering that bulky cart should be a breeze!
  • The pharmacy and surrounding space is one of the more noticeably-changed areas in the update, featuring a new layout and some interesting design elements (dig those hexagonal ceiling decorations!)

Kroger’s U.A. store is just the latest to receive the remodel treatment. Next up is the location at 199 Graceland Blvd., which will host an open house on Wednesday, August 14 from 4-6 PM following its own $4 million update.

Can’t make it to either of these locations but curious what changes might be in store for a Kroger near you? Take a look at our virtual tour of the Henderson Road store, showcasing some of the many recent upgrades:

During Military Appreciation Night at Nationwide Arena on Thursday, Dale Burke and her kids Katie, Leo, and Aubrey were playing an in-game contest. They were tasked with choosing a mystery prize behind the curtain or $100 in cash. They chose the mystery prize.

The stakes were raised when they were offered $200 in cash or the mystery prize. The Burke's stuck with the unknown, which turned out to be the best choice ever.

The curtain was pulled to reveal Army National Guard Sgt. Leonard Burke, returning home to his wife and kids after an 11-month deployment in Kuwait.

The Blue Jackets win was the cherry on top of an amazing night at Nationwide Arena.

Thank you, Sgt. Burke, and all the other men and women in uniform for your sacrifice and service.

Police are investigating an incident in which officers shot and killed a wild coyote after one officer was bitten by the animal.

According to 10TV, the officer was assisting a stranded driver on I-70 eastbound near Hamilton Road when the animal approached and attacked a state road worker, who was also attempting to help the stranded driver.

The coyote then bit the officer, who punched the animal, causing it to flee. When more officers arrived at the scene, the coyote returned and began acting aggressively.
