As part of a series of renovations, Kroger plans to begin closing its Euclid Avenue grocery in Lexington nightly instead of keeping it open 24 hours. Beginning Sunday, the store will close at 11 p.m. nightly and reopen at 7 a.m. for up to six weeks. The store won't close on Saturday nights, though, said spokesman Tim McGurk, as that night is its busiest.
While the store is closed, crews will be pulling up its tile floor to allow for a stained concrete floor that is used in newer Kroger locations, McGurk said. They will also be installing new frozen food cases. The workers will have to remove the front glass in the store to allow for their installation, as the cases can't fit through the back service entrance, he said.
Other 24-hour Kroger locations in Lexington include the stores on Richmond Road, Tates Creek Road, Regency Road, Bryan Station Road, Alexandria Drive, Boston Road, Leestown Road and one at Brannon Crossing in Jessamine County.
