Cincinnati-based The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) is unveiling its first Pay Less store in Muncie. The company invested nearly $4 million to renovate a former Marsh location in the Delaware County city.

The store opens to the public Thursday morning. Kroger says 49 of the new Pay Less associates worked at the store when it was a Marsh.

The grocery chain says $1 million of the $3.8 million investment went to technology upgrades. Kroger says the store’s new Made-To-Order section will feature fresh food ranging from sushi to chicken and pizza.

Last month, Kroger opened its new store in downtown Indianapolis. That location is also in a former Kroger store. In July, Kroger subsidiary Topvalco Inc. purchased 11 former Marsh stores in a $16 million deal.
