The supermarket chain bought the famed shop and its outlets for $20.6 million on Jan. 31, according to city records.
Murray’s has more than 350 locations inside Kroger supermarkets in 30 states thanks to a nearly decade-long partnership between the two businesses, the Wall Street Journal reported.
There are no Kroger’s in New York.
Rob Kaufelt, who owns Murray’s, will stay on as a strategic adviser.
Kaufelt sold three commercial units at 350-254 Bleecker St., which also houses Amy’s Bread.
Murray’s was founded in 1940 and sells more than 300 types of cheeses, meats and other food. Its other location is in Grand Central Terminal.
Both of Murray’s locations will continue to operate as is, a spokeswoman said.
“For cheese lovers and connoisseurs, it doesn’t get more authentic than Murray’s,” said Kroger’s CEO Rodney McMullen in a statement. “Our customers are excited to buy the unique offerings of Murray’s Cheese right in our stores, and we’re excited to ensure this iconic cheese shop will remain a part of the Kroger family for many years to come.”
