Kroger creating 160 jobs to launch grocery delivery service in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Kroger Co. announced plans today to hire 161 new employees in Birmingham as the national grocery chain rolls out its e-commerce grocery delivery service in the region.

The BBA announced today that Kroger has leased a 50,000-square-foot facility at 30 West Oxmoor Road that will serve as a last-mile spoke location for its new delivery network, powered by a high-tech customer fulfillment center, also known as a hub, near Atlanta.

“Kroger today looks very different than it did in 1883 when we opened our first store. But the core principles that made that store successful — service, selection, value, and our commitment to our customers — remain the bedrock of our business,” said Rodney McMullen, Kroger’s chairman and CEO.

“I’m incredibly excited for the future of Kroger, and both thriving physical stores and digital solutions are part of it.”
