MACON, Ga. — A new climate controlled storage center could soon replace the Kroger on Pio Nono Avenue that closed in spring 2018.
That’s according to documents on the Macon-Bibb County Planning & Zoning agenda for Jan. 13, 2020.
The plans for the project, which were submitted to the zoning board on Dec. 12, say the developers plan on using the existing structure and they wouldn’t be building anything new on the over 84,000-square-foot space.
In the narrative section of the documents, the space would be transformed into a climate controlled self-storage facility with 569 units inside.
The development group says they don’t anticipate traffic in the area becoming an issue, nor do they think the spot will negatively impact the surrounding neighborhoods.
The Kroger previously at that location closed due to declining sales and profit on April 20, 2018, after being open for 21 years.
All 125 employees at the location were considered for relocation to the six remaining Kroger locations in Macon.
