LOUISVILLE, KY - Murray's Cheese Shop is coming to the Louisville area through an exclusive partnership with Kroger. The new shop will be added inside the St. Matthew’s Kroger store, located at 291 North Hubbards Lane, Louisville, KY.
Murray’s and Kroger are hosting a grand opening celebration for the public on Sunday, October 7th from 1PM to 4PM at the Hubbard’s Lane Kroger, featuring cheese and beer pairings put together by Murray’s experts.
“Louisville is known as a foodie town and we are eager share this unique shopping experience with our customers and educate them on the best cheese for parties, snacking and trays,” said Murray’s Cheese Specialist, Vickie Oliver. “We are excited to offer our customers the chance to try new cheeses they will love and better versions of their favorites.”
