According to a news release, most stores in Georgia, east Alabama and South Carolina will be opening at 6 a.m. and closing at 11 p.m. or midnight.

“The expanded hours will help maintain social distancing requirements during busy summer months,” said Felix Turner, manager of corporate affairs for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “The safety of our customers and associates remains our top priority. Kroger will continue to maintain protective measures established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Those protective measures include limiting store capacity to 50%, floor decals and signs promoting social distancing, requiring employees to wear protective masks, plexiglass partitions at checkout lanes, temperature checks for employees, and more.

Due to the expanded hours, Kroger’s Atlanta Division will no longer have a dedicated shopping hour for seniors and at-risk customers.
