It'll be right across the street from a planned Publix.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Heads up shoppers in east Louisville, Kroger is planning to build another grocery store in the area.

Officials with the company filed the proposed plans with the Louisville Metro Planning & Design department on Monday, March 20.

The store will be located on an 8-acre plot of land at 10010 Ballardsville Road.
