As part of a previously announced $75 million investment in the upgrading of stores in Ft. Wayne, Ind., Kroger opened a fueling center at a Scott's Food & Pharmacy store.

CINCINNATI — As part of a previously announced $75 million investment in the upgrading of stores in Ft. Wayne, Ind., Kroger last week opened a fueling center at a Scott's Food & Pharmacy store. The company plans to open 10 fuel centers in the market within the next three years, according to local media reports.

Kroger offers a 10-cent discount on fuel for every $100 spent in store. The Scott's fuel center, the first under the Scott's banner, is also the first fuel center in Kroger's Central Division to have a handicap service button at every pump.

Kroger acquired the 18-store Scott's Food & Pharmacy chain from Supervalu in 2007.
