Some Updates on Kroger Fuel & Newport Pavilion


So I made mention prior to the Kroger opening about a School Spirit shop that would include wear from area high schools.  I am not sure what  I expected when Kroger touted this feature but I have to admit that this is a pretty weak effort.  And what, no Bluebirds gear?  Who is to blame for this - Kroger showing some cake eater bias or lack of response by Highlands?

Also, there have been questions about the fuel center opening and the last time I spoke with someone at Kroger they had indicated a March opening.  That now appears to be pushed back further.  I was told recently that the underground piping that delayed the Kroger opening is to blame and must be what is holding up construction for the Target.  With problems continuing to mount for Bear Creek this can not be a good sign for future development on the site.  The Newport Pavilion is one of the last remaining developments from Bear Creek that has not gone into foreclosure but perhaps a speedy move through foreclosure and a new developer is the best thing that could happen to the site.

  1. I'm not sure when your photo of the "spirit shop" was taken, but I have seen Highlands spirit wear at Kroger. They had plenty of T's and sweatshirts right after the State win. Don't know what has happened since.
