314 W 8th Street, Covington, KY 

According to local sources and from records obtained through the library this was one of the first Kroger stores in Kentucky.  It was being used at the time of purchase as a printing shop.  Note the solar panel on the front facade.  This is why design criteria in historic neighborhoods is so important.  Also notice the infill house next to it.  Again the importance of design codes.
