MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Kroger stores across South Carolina plan to cut out time for seniors and high-risk individuals to get their shopping done during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The stores will block off 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday-Thursday for those over 60 and high-risk individuals, as defined by the CDC. That will begin March 23.

A press release from the store chain’s Atlanta division says store associates will be happy to help anyone who needs it while shopping.

The release added the company encourages “all customers to respect these special hours as we work to protect our community members.”
