725 Ponce Kroger, shortly referred to as BeltLine Kroger, will open its doors later this week with a grand opening celebration on Wednesday, October 16.

Situated in the new 725 Ponce development where Murder Kroger once stood, the celebration will start at 8:00 a.m. with comments from community leaders, including Atlanta City Councilman Amir Farokhi and Rob Brawner, executive director of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership.

“The 65,000 square foot store reflects the spirit and vibrancy of the Beltline and surrounding communities, featuring murals from local artists and Atlanta-themed décor, along with a green roof with plants and beehives,” Felix Turner, manager of corporate affairs for Kroger’s Atlanta Division, said in a press release Monday outlining the opening plans.

Unique features special to the 725 Ponce Kroger include a Starbucks and the Pub on Ponce Beer & Wine bar, both with a walk-up window and Beltline access, and a satellite B’s Cracklin BBQ, all of which will open this week.

There is also a Murray’s Cheese, a made-to-order sandwich station, salad bar, “Home Chef Case,” Kroger Pick-up (available after Oct. 23), and a Scan-Bag-Go which allows shoppers to use their smartphone to scan items as they shop and pay on their phone.

The grand opening of the 725 Ponce Kroger will also celebrate Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative.

Procter and Gamble will join the festivities, donating $25,000 to the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help replenish its inventory and Kroger will recognize Antioch Urban Ministries, with a $500 gift card, as part of the initiative.

Kroger will also donate $500 gift cards to Grady High School, Inman Park Middle School, and Springdale Park Elementary School.

  1. Just call it the Ponce Kroger! Like the Publix on Ponce. “BeltLine Kroger” will become confusing as the BeltLine grows. Ponce isn’t getting longer and there is unlikely to be another grocery store built on it.
