New Kroger store planned for Maumee

Posted: Updated:
MAUMEE, Ohio -

Leaders in Maumee are working hard to bring businesses back to one part of the city.  Developers are working out plans involving the Reynolds Road-Conant Street Corridor.

A new Kroger store is planned to open at Dussel and Reynolds.  Plus, down the street a Toledo church is moving into the vacant building that used to be home to a movie theater.

As you exit the turnpike and turn south, there soon won't be as many vacant buildings on Conant Street if all goes according to plan.

"It's a well known landmark in our community," says Pastor Chad Gilligan of the Calvary Assembly of God.

Calvary Assembly of God church in Toledo bought the old movie theater building in Maumee and will move operations there in time for Christmas.

Pastor Gilligan says Maumee just approved the renovation permit on Tuesday for the 93,000 square foot building.

"It'll be a blessing both for our church as well as we hope for the area," says Pastor Gilligan.

North on Conant, the old Dalton Floorz is still vacant, but across the street Kroger is looking to add its 20th store in the Toledo area.

A spokesperson for Kroger tells 13 ABC there is no timeline for breaking ground right now at the old Ed Schmidt and Hummer sites, but there is a plan which includes a gas station. 

A public hearing with the Maumee Planning Commission is scheduled for May 30th.

"We are doing our due diligence on the site as we look for a better way to serve our customers in the city of Maumee," says Jackie Siekmann, Media and Government Relations Manager for Kroger.

City leaders hope Kroger and the church begin the rejuvenation of the Reynolds Road-Conant Street Corridor.

"It's interesting to watch as some businesses left , but we're beginning to see life that's coming back to this Reynolds Road-Conant Street corridor.  We're excited to be a part of it," says Pastor Gilligan.
