It's unanimous: Kroger-Ocado warehouse coming to Groveland

Cincinnati-based supermarket giant Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) and U.K.-based online-only grocer Ocado Solutions have confirmed where they're planting their Central Florida e-commerce warehouse. The 375,000-square-foot Groveland Customer Fulfillment Centers will be located in Groveland, a city west of Orlando in Lake County, at U.S. 27 and American Way near Florida's Turnpike, according to a March 18 release. The announcement comes after the city of Groveland unanimously approved a resolution March 18 approving an economic incentive award and authorizing City Manager Mike Hein to work with the companies to open the center.
