Kroger said Thursday that it’s expanding to Oklahoma City — a market where it doesn’t operate stores but will offer online grocery shopping from its automated Dallas facility.
Last year, Kroger tried the concept of expanding its geography with online-only grocery in Florida and has called that “a successful entry” into the state, which is dominated by grocers Publix and Walmart.
The Dallas facility that allows Kroger to deliver to residents of Oklahoma City is being built with its U.K. technology partner, Ocado. The Dallas facility was announced in 2019 and is nearing completion. Dallas is a hub in a highly automated hub-and-spoke system.Dallas News
