A former Kroger location that shut down late in 2011 has been transformed into a cash-only megastore for restaurateurs.
According to permits filed with Henrico County, the Restaurant Depot build-out at 7951 Brook Road cost owners Jetro Cash and Cary Enterprises about $3.3 million. The 62,000-square-foot property was built in 1997.
Restaurateurs can get a free membership to Restaurant Depot by showing their business licenses. The store opened at the end of February.
In June, Kroger spokesman Carl York said the company shut down the Brook Road location because it was underperforming and cannibalizing business from other locations.
