Kroger is the third-largest retailer, with Walmart as the first. It was the largest retailer in 2019, in terms of revenue, as it accumulated $121.16 billion. Today, Kroger is a chain of hypermarkets, superstores, department stores, jewelry and convenience stores.

Kroger hours near me today: Why is Kroger not 24 hours anymore?

In October, Kroger announced that its store hours would be changing to align with its COVID-19 protocols. The store now opens from 6 AM to 11 PM.

According to the store’s Manager of Corporate affairs, Felix Turner, the new store hours will also help the staff to rebuild their shelves and organize their stock. 

However, this new policy applies mostly to Kroger stores in Eastern Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. So store hours may vary across other locations. The best way to get information on when the stores around your location open is to use Kroger’s online store locator.

How to use Kroger’s online store locator

It’s simple, really. All you have to do is visit Kroger’s store locator page. Once you’ve done that, follow these steps:

  • Enter your postal or ZIP code, City or State. E.g. New York or Texas. Alternatively, click on the “Search Using My Location” option. This will allow the website to use your real-time location to find Kroger store branches near you.

Will Kroger be open on New Year’s Day?

Like most grocery stores, Kroger will remain open on New Year’s Day. The store will maintain its normal hours. So if you need to go on an emergency shopping spree, the store will be open to all. 

The store will also remain open on New Year’s Eve, as well as Christmas Eve. But Kroger doesn’t open on Christmas Day. So in the future, it’s best to do your last minute shopping on Christmas Eve, or even before. Otherwise, you’d have to wait until Boxing Day when the store reopens.

As a reminder, the store opens from 6 AM to 11 PM, although these hours may vary across multiple Kroger stores. You can use the online store locator to find information about a particular Kroger store, as we’ve illustrated above.
