CINCINNATI, Oh. — Beginning Monday, March 23, Kroger Food Stores in Kentucky, Southern Indiana, and Southern Illinois will adjust their hours to 7:00 am to 9:00 pm daily.
The first hour 7:00 am – 8:00 am, Monday thru Thursday will be dedicated to seniors, 60-years-old and older and other high-risk customers as defined by the CDC. Kroger associates will help anyone who needs assistance while shopping.
Kroger says the shift in hours will allow their employees more time to clean and restock shelves.
“We know from the CDC that seniors and others with serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness,” said Erin Grant, corporate affairs manager for the Kroger Louisville division. She added, “Many of our shoppers have shared with us their concerns for this most vulnerable group, so we believe they will respect this decision and hold off their shopping during these times.”
