Last week the first Michigan Kroger Marketplace location opened. It is it on the northwest corner of 23 Mile and Hayes in Shelby Township. The address is 4945 23 Mile Rd. I had a chance to take a tour of the store before they opened and was quite impressed.
The store has so much to offer. I love that it is one stop shopping. Grab your groceries, a toy for a birthday party and even get your watch battery changed all at one location. I was happy to see they have a huge organic produce section and lots of Michigan products including a large selection Michigan beers and wine.
This video will give you a store tour with pictures.
Kroger Marketplace Specialty Departments
Murray’s Cheese Shop
- Murray’s Cheese has been in business since 1940 and started moving into the grocery market as a way to offer cheeses to more people. It opened the first Kroger outlet six years ago in Cincinnati, where Kroger is headquartered.
- Murray’s Cheese is a well-respected cheese store in Greenwich Village of New York, with another location at Grand Central Terminal.
- At the Shelby Twp. Kroger Marketplace customers will have access to more than 200 specialty cheeses, handpicked by Murray’s Cheese.
- Over the past three years, Murray’s has trained more than 1,000 Kroger associates in their “red jacket training” program. Kroger staffs each location with a cheesemaster and cheese associates who have received extensive cheese service training from Murray’s. Before each store opening, the cheesemaster and store managers travel to New York City for on-the-ground training at Murray’s Cheese flagship location.
- If you don’t know anything about cheese or if you know everything about cheese, it will be fun to shop at Kroger and learn from the cheese experts in the Deli department. It’s a choose-your-own adventure at the cheese counter. Murray’s philosophy is taste before you buy so you’re welcome to swing by anytime to try a new cheese.
