A Rural King Supply will replace the former southwest side Kroger store in a $2.3 million transaction.
The Cincinnati-based retailer sold the 66,000-square-foot store, 8801 U.S. 24 West, to a company that specializes in selling livestock feed, farm equipment, agricultural parts and lawn mowers.
"It will be really good for the area," said Jessica Huffman, whose company, CBRE Sturges, brokered the deal. "We're glad it finally got done."
Kroger closed the store in October 2012 when the retailer opened its Kroger Marketplace in the Village at Coventry. The $16 million store was part of the company's more than $100 million investment in the community after it acquired the Scott's Food & Pharmacy chain.
