Kroger stores have returned to normal hours

Starting Sunday, Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic returned to normal operating hours.

The company adjusted hours in mid-March to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

The company’s store in Lawrence County, located in Proctorville, as well as the two stores in Boyd County, Kentucky, located in Ashland and Russell, will open at 6 a.m. every day and close at 11 p.m.

Shopping hours for seniors and high-risk individuals will take place from 6-8 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at each location, a one-hour extension of the previous schedule.

Pharmacy hours will not change. Fuel centers will open at 6 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. or 11 p.m.

“The health, safety and well-being of our associates, customers and communities remains our top priority,” Allison McGee, corporate affairs manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic, said. “The expanded hours will allow for more social distancing of our customers. We will still utilize the same stringent sanitation requirements throughout our locations and ask that customers continue to practice social distancing and wear masks while shopping.”

The company said they continue to take protective measures in stores, including limiting store capacity, enhanced daily sanitation, including cart sanitation, plexiglass barriers at registers, social distancing decals to encourage social distancing, sanitizer stations throughout stores, personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks, gloves and face shields provided for associates, associate temperature monitoring, continuing to expand curbside pickup and delivery services, as well as contactless payment solutions like Kroger Pay.
