What’s the latest on a new Smith’s Marketplace proposed for Henderson?

Updated February 22, 2024 - 2:55 pm

More than a year after initially filing plans for a second Smith’s Marketplace in Henderson, parent company Kroger said it hopes to open this location sometime next year.

The Smith’s Marketplace — an expanded department store version of the traditional grocery store — would occupy just under 130,000 square feet in existing buildings at Galleria Commons, a shopping center between West Sunset and West Warm Springs roads in Henderson. Offerings at this store should include grocery, pharmacy, electronics and other retail products and gas pumps, a Kroger spokesperson said.

A conceptual plan for the project was approved by the city in February 2023, Henderson records show. Now Kroger is seeking to have some development standards involving the outdoor open space requirements for this location waived.

The waiver request was discussed at a Henderson staff review meeting in January and could go before the Henderson Planning Commission in April, a Henderson spokesperson said.

The anticipated opening of this Smith’s Marketplace is “mid-2025,” said a Kroger spokesperson.

“Timing is dependent upon receipt of the necessary approvals and relocation of the current retailer at that location,” the Kroger spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

This location used to be occupied by a Burlington store — formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory — and a Dollar Tree. Burlington’s website shows it no longer has a store at this location, but Dollar Tree is still there.

This is the second Smith’s Marketplace that Kroger has proposed in Henderson, the first Henderson Smith’s Marketplace opened at the Cadence Village Center in 2022.
