Georgia Kroger stores designate senior shopping hour

ATLANTA — Georgia Kroger stores have announced they will designate an hour each morning for seniors over 60 and high-risk individuals to shop.

Starting Monday, Kroger’s Atlanta Division, which includes Georgia, eastern Alabama and South Carolina, will block off 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Thursday.

“During these hours, we will be open for those who may be more susceptible to COVID-19,” said Felix Turner, manager of corporate affairs for Kroger’s Atlanta Division.

Turner said Kroger employees will be happy to help shoppers.

“We encourage all customers to respect these special hours as we work to protect our community members,” Turner said.
