Kohl's and Kroger to require masks for customers

Posted at 8:10 AM, Jul 16, 2020

(LEX 18) — The lists of stores requiring face masks continues to grow.

Kohl's department stores and Kroger grocery announced Wednesday that they would start requiring all customers to wear masks.

The moves come the same day Walmart and Best Buy announced similar moves.

Most major retailers and grocers have hesitated to enact mask mandates partly over fears of antagonizing shoppers who refuse to wear them.

Retailers also say they are reluctant to put their employees in the position of enforcing mask requirements.
