MICHIGAN - With growth on its mind, retail giant Kroger is pushing ahead with expansion plans across the U.S., but has recently been making efforts to boost its presence in the Michigan retail space.

The retailer has been laying the groundwork in the state for some time now, as Kroger built a new $25-million facility in 2017 to handle the anticipated increase in demand. Now, the retailer is ramping up its efforts, holding a hiring event to fill more than 500 positions at its stores across Michigan.
