PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A possible expansion could be coming to two local Kroger stores.

There has been talk that the Kroger in Perrysburg could become a marketplace, which would involve it expanding into what is currently a vacant building nearby.

"Bigger would be, I guess, OK, because they've started to stop carrying a few things because it's so small, so maybe they'll expand everything," said Richard Michel, a Kroger shopper.

In Bowling Green, Kroger confirmed they've purchased the shopping center next to a Kroger on North Main Street. Kroger officials say a possible expansion there is still in the early stages, too.

"We're really excited," said Craig Iagulli, from Perrysburg Floor Covering and Design.

Iagulli and others who work in the area say they think expanding would be great for surrounding businesses, as well.

"It'll help in all kinds of ways, as far as bringing traffic to the area," Iagulli said. "It already does, having Kroger there, but even moreso now."

Kroger says they are slowly taking steps toward expanding but would not confirm any plans to take over the former Sears building near the Perrysburg store.
