An Atlanta grocery store known as "Disco Kroger" is reopening after a $5.5 million transformation into an gourmet foodie's paradise.

The Kroger in Atlanta's tony Buckhead neighborhood is becoming one of the chain's "Fresh Fare" locales with $1,000 temperature-controlled wines, fresh organic treats and chef-made entrees.

The new store is scheduled to open Sunday.

It's the fifth "Fresh Fare" Kroger in the country and the first in Georgia as the Ohio-based chain tries to compete with stores like Whole Foods and Fresh Market.

Despite the overhaul, the store's silver disco ball will still hang at the front entrance.

It got the nickname in the 1908s because it share a shopping center with the Limelight disco in the city's popular clubbing district.
