The great Hillcrest Kroger watch is nearing a climax, though a planned Oct. 2 opening of the rebuilt store at Kavanaugh and Beechwood has apparently been pushed back a week, perhaps because of some utility difficulties. A neighbor, not me, has received a VIP invite to a pre-opening party Friday night, Oct. 8.
Chopped liver the rest of us may be, but thanks to Forbidden Hillcrest, you can get a glimpse of the rebuilt store ahead of the swells. More pix at the link.
UPDATE: Speaking of new stores, Target has announced it will open several new stores, including its new one on the former site of University Mall, on Oct. 10. The Little Rock Target will include produce, fresh meat and baked goods along with the other usual stuff.
