Businesses expanding, opportunities arise in Perrysburg

Posted: Updated:
PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Big changes are coming to Perrysburg, which could lead to more places for people to shop, eat and stay.

The Kroger off of Route 20 will be taking over the vacant spot next to it, where Kmart  used to be. City leaders say they'll be demolishing the current building and constructing a larger facility for Kroger.

That will leave Kroger's current residence available to new tenants.

On Route 25, a new Holiday Inn Express is going to be built next to Levis Commons, and a new Taco Bell across the street.

City leaders say these changes will have a positive impact for Perrysburg.

"We've got a lot of new businesses coming in, and that breeds new opportunity," said City Councilmember Todd Grayson. "You bring in new jobs and new housing, and that's always going to add to more jobs and more housing. It's a nice cycle to get into."

The new developments can also bring more traffic, but Perrysburg leaders say they're already working on a plan for the 475-25 interchange that will help reduce congestion in the area when it's complete.
