The Kroger location at 1401 N. Main St. in Suffolk is now offering a new seafood case featuring local products from the Chesapeake Bay and Eastern Shore.

“We installed the case based on customer feedback, and we can’t wait to offer Suffolk shoppers new seafood options,” said Allison McGee, corporate affairs manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic. “You can always count on us to find fresh, in-season and locally-relevant food.”

The case will feature fresh and high-quality seafood products sourced from around the world with a focus on sustainable practices, according to a company press release. The case will also feature selections from local vendors like Virginia-based George’s Seafood and Dickie’s Seafood. Trained associates will be available to help customers find the perfect type of seafood.
