Kroger adjusts store hours in Georgia and South Carolina

They say they need to change hours to train new associates and focus on stocking due to customer demand

ATLANTA — A day after Kroger said Georgia locations would be keeping their current store hours, the company has decided to change them after all.

According to a news release, stores in Georgia, Eastern Alabama and South Carolina will shift customer service hours to 8 a.m. through 9 p.m.

“As of Monday, we were hoping to maintain current store hours. However, this temporary adjustment is necessary to allow our store teams time to train new associates, while focusing on additional cleaning as well as stocking our fresh, affordable food and essentials,” said Felix Turner, manager of corporate affairs for Kroger’s Atlanta Division.

The release makes it clear this is NOT due to supply chain issues, they just need to respond to increased customer demand and cleaning requirements.

Locations in those states are continuing to hire and those in industries hit hard by coronavirus are encouraged to apply at jobs.kroger.com
