A new Kroger off Wall Triana Highway opened Wednesday morning, replacing the old store on Hughes Road.
As the first 100 people made their way into the newest Kroger addition at 7am, that was the fifth hour of wait time for Wayne Hayes.
“I was here for the door prizes this morning,” said Hayes. “Greg Screws said to get down here early and so I got down here about 2 o’clock this morning. Just bright-eyed and ready to get it and hit it and ready to go!”
As ready as ever, Hayes passed the time on his phone while he waited for the rest of the crowd to trickle in. The new store has a lot to offer its customers.
