ATLANTA — Days after announcing they’d be doing away with shopping hours for seniors and those at high-risk of severe COVID-19 infection, Kroger is bringing them back.

According to a news release, stores in Georgia, South Carolina and east Alabama will be offering senior shopping hours once again starting on May 27.

They will now be from 6-8 a.m. every Wednesday.

In the news release from earlier this week, they also said they’d be expanding store and fuel center hours.

Some stores will open at 5 a.m. and close at 11 p.m. or midnight. Select locations will be open for 24-hour shopping. Pharmacy hours will not change.

You should check Kroger’s store locator at to see the hours of your preferred store.
