The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) is celebrating the grand re-opening of its Westfield store. The grocery chain says the $12 million investment will create at least 175 additional jobs. 

The store features nearly 82,000 square feet of retail space and a fuel center. Several departments were relocated for a “grab and go” customer experience. The pharmacy was also relocated and includes The Little Clinic.

“The grocery, pharmacy and fuel markets are very competitive in Indiana, but also very important for The Kroger Co. Our solid success in the marketplace allows us to make significant economic and work force investments in our Indiana stores. Our investment in Westfield is a strong vote of confidence and will allow us to continue providing quality products, competitive prices and outstanding customer service, while being a supportive community partner, I also am pleased to honor the longest-serving associate in this store, Mike Taflinger, who has worked for Kroger since 1980 – 35 years,” Kroger Central Division President Jeff Burt said.

"The newly-remodeled store offers so many conveniences to the Westfield community and The Little Clinic is proud to be a part of the health and wellness presence within the store," said Beth Pretti, regional clinical director of The Little Clinic locations in Indiana.

Kroger officials say the project is part of a $465 million, multi-year investment in central Indiana.
