Kroger is building a new store in Melissa, Texas. Situated off Sam Rayburn Highway and Washington Drive, this Kroger will be a part of the Melissa Village shopping center, serving as its anchor store in Phase II of the development. The addition of Kroger to the area comes after Phase I of the shopping center brought in popular brand names like Wing Stop, Taco Bell, Starbucks, Burger King, and Braum’s.

This is one of three new Kroger stores coming to the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area. Kroger is a well-known and trusted grocery store chain, offering a wide range of fresh produce, meats, dairy products, household essentials, and more. With its convenient location in the Melissa Village shopping center, the new Kroger will provide residents with easy access to their grocery needs.

Kroger is one of the largest retail grocery chains in the United States, with its roots tracing back to the late 19th century. In 1883 Bernard Kroger, a Cincinnati-based businessman, founded the first Kroger store. It was the first grocery chain to establish its own bakery. Today Kroger operates thousands of stores in multiple formats, including supermarkets, supercenters, convenience stores, and more, serving millions of customers across the United States.

Location History

The site of the new Kroger holds significance as it marks the first major development on this piece of land. Aerial images of the area date back to 1956 when Melissa has less than 400 residents. In the early 2000s, home construction began to the north of the site, further contributing to the growth of the Melissa community.
