Senior hour is from 7 to 8 in the morning Monday through Thursday at Kroger so I arrived right at 7.
I felt like the new kid on the block as I had to learn the new rules for in store shopping.
First thing I noticed was that the main entrance was locked and the other entrance was flanked by an employee who was making sure that only seniors wearing masks were allowed in the store.
After grabbing a sanitized cart I made my way into the store, where I felt like a kid in a candy store. I noticed that there weren't any directional arrows on the floor so I made my way to the toilet paper aisle first.
Who knew I could get so excited over toilet paper, but when I saw a pack of eighteen mega rolls of my favorite brand I nearly squealed. (Well I may have squealed a little)
Once the excitement was over I made my way over to the produce section and proceeded to make my way around the store with the list I had made the night before. As I went through the store I noticed how few people were shopping. I don't think there were over ten customers in total.
Luckily I was able to find everything on my list except paper towels and liquid hand soap. I don't use many paper towels and as I just opened a large roll I won't really need any for awhile. I have a histamine reaction to perfume so I need unscented soap. I found some on Amazon and ordered it yesterday.
The experience I had was definitely positive so I will continue to go to the senior hour for now. I still cleaned off the groceries when I got them home so that hasn't changed, but being able to pick out my own groceries and saving money always makes me very happy.
