Kroger delivers change in Denver metro area
The Kroger Co.'s Customer Fulfillment Center in Aurora, CO, has opened. This facility expands access to fresh, affordable food and provides more than 200 new associates with opportunities to grow their careers. Customers across the region can order Kroger's fresh produce and trend-setting Our Brands products to be delivered directly to their doors by a friendly associate.
"Kroger Delivery, proudly serving King Soopers and City Market, will connect more Coloradans to a convenient shopping experience," said Rebekah Manis, senior director of Kroger delivery fulfillment centers. "Delivery customers can save with personalized digital coupons and fuel points on the products their families need, want and love. Kroger Delivery means more customers can enjoy high-quality, affordable groceries ordered through an easy-to-use online experience."
The approximately 300,000 square-foot facility will delivery groceries and home essentials to customers up to 90 minutes away. Kroger Delivery uses cutting-edge technology, temperature-controlled vans and efficiently optimized delivery routes to ensure only the freshest products are delivered to customers' homes.
"Kroger's facility will serve as a critical food distribution hub and may attract more fresh food options such as urban farms and greenhouses that work with Kroger," said Aurora Mayor Mike Coffman. "This new facility comes as other large, national organizations seek similar sites in Aurora."
"As one of the strongest economies in the country, we're thrilled the Kroger-Ocado partnership recognized the quality business parks, infrastructure improvements, and diverse workforce here," said Wendy Mitchell, president and CEO of Aurora Economic Development Council. "This is a fast-growing industry sector that will be a catalyst for additional development in the area."
