What a whirlwind the past month has been for everyone. I hope our readers had a chance to get out this past month and shop and eat local and maybe find their own hidden treasures here in Pickaway County.
The worldwide Coronavirus pandemic has made doing business difficult on everyone throughout our community and many have had to pivot the way in which they do their specific business. It is no surprise that a leader in response and safety was our community was a chamber member and local grocery, Kroger.
Kroger Co. has been dedicated to keeping their customers and employees safe from the beginning and this unforeseen circumstances only enhanced those practices. They immediately changed their shopping hours, identified specific hours for those who fell in the higher risk category and waived their curbside and pickup fees to encourage social distancing. Kroger then provided every employee a mask to wear while at work. All of these things were then included in a Blueprint for retail and industry that they then shared with the nation outlining what they did to keep their employees and the communities they serve safe.
In Pickaway County we are lucky to have such a devoted business in our community. I encourage you if you are able to visit KrogerBlueprint.com to access the Sharing What We’ve Learned: A Blueprint for Business as well as check out their downloadable creative assets that might be helpful in your own business or for someone you know! Next time you are in Kroger I encourage you to check out the many noticeable changes they have made to encourage social distancing and safety.
