LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Kroger announced that beginning March 23, Kroger and Jay C Food stores will change their hours of operation to 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Kroger and Jay C Food will also dedicate the first hour of operation (7 a.m. to 8 a.m.) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays to seniors over 60 and other higher-risk customers, as defined by the CDC. Kroger and Jay C associates will also assist anyone who needs additional help while shopping.

“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. “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.”
