Kroger to Bring 161 Jobs to Birmingham With New Direct-to-Consumer Grocery Delivery Service

The Kroger Co. announced today it will hire 161 new employees in Birmingham this year to introduce its e-commerce grocery delivery service into the region. The national grocery chain has leased a 50,000-square-foot facility at 30 West Oxmoor Road that will serve as a last-mile spoke location for its delivery network, powered by a high-tech customer fulfillment center, also known as a hub, near Atlanta, Ga.

“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.”
