RAINELLE - Kroger Rewards Program members in Rainelle can soon save money at the pump.
The grocery store chain is building a new gas station there and construction has been ongoing for about a month and a half. Folks can use their rewards cards to earn points to use toward fuel purchases.
Carol Parker, co-manager of the Rainelle Kroger branch, believes the new fuel center will benefit the area since customers asked for it in surveys. "We're going to add some new jobs to the community, we're very excited about that," she said. "It will help all of our customers as well as our associates in the store."
The fuel center is set to open in mid-January. Parker said it could open earlier depending on the weather, which can impact construction.
