Goss Lane Kroger added 22,000 square-feet, without hindering your shopping experience. This involved moving into adjacent space in the shopping center, a space that had no original construction plans. Qk4 has worked on over 35 Kroger projects in the past 20 years, when given this challenge, Qk4 engineers assessed the existing structure and determined what to retain for the Goss Avenue expansion. This addition included a delivery dock, a pharmacy drive-through window, a fuel station and a kitchen department, it was completed in January 2011.
