(MARTINSVILLE) - Kroger grocery stores is getting ready to dump $4.5 million in Martinsville.

The grocery store giant announced today it is moving up its timeline to invest $4.5 million in a revamp of the Martinsville store, which fell victim to the massive flooding in June.

The Martinsville Kroger remained closed for 10 weeks following the devastating flooding and was already planning on remodeling the store next year, but the floods gave Kroger the opportunity to just go ahead and start.

The Kroger Company, during the flooding, already donated thousands of gallons of bottled water and mile and thousands of loaves of bread among flooded areas in Martinsville, Columbus, Edinburgh and Franklin.
