VIRGINIA BEACH-- Construction is set to start on a new grocery store in Virginia Beach on Oct. 4.
Kroger Marketplace will be located on Holland Road and is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013.
The Marketplace store combines its traditional grocery items with 30,000 square feet of home items, ranging from furniture to home decor.
Following the 10 a.m. groundbreaking crews will begin tearing down the existing storefront.
This is the first Marketplace in the area and only the second in Virginia, said spokeswoman Julia Salatino. The first should open in Richmond in December.
