KROGER HEALTH AND COVID-19

By now, I guess we all know that 2020 has been a crisis year, to say the least. Earlier in 2020, the breaking news was spread around the world that a deadly disease was out of its shell.

Covid-19 or Corona Virus is that kind of a lethal disease that spreads just by touching or being near a person affected by it. A lot of scientists and biologists were confused about how did the disease spread? What are the symptoms? Because earlier days of the Corona Virus, people couldn’t differentiate between the fact that were they having symptoms of  Corona or just simple effects of Pneumonia or the random flu. The symptoms were so alike but the effects were long-lasting and dangerous. People isolated themselves for 14 days maximum just to see if their body was showing any signs for the virus. The whole world was on lockdown. And in my opinion, this has to be THE WORST YEAR any country, THE WORLD to say the least had to face.

Many people across the world searched for possible remedies. Some people tried home-made remedies, some scientists were on the look for a vaccine while others were searching for people so that they could provide them with proper care. Not only did Covid-19 threatened the 7 billion population in the world, but it also threatened environmental protection and sustainability as well.

KROGER HEALTH

Kroger has always been known as that company who not only took care of its customers and employees but also it took care of the environment. From raising questions like “how can we produce less waste?” to actually making it possible, Kroger has always been there for the world. Kroger’s health actually provides us with all the help we need regarding our health. Prescriptions for our illness, flu shots, vaccination, or anything(you name it!)

Kroger health implemented new tools and a simple and easy drive-thru flu shots centers in 19 regions. (This just keeps GETTING BETTER!)

On September 9th, 2020 Kroger health, the healthcare department of the retail company announced that they would introduce a flu shot program that would help Americans get their recommended vaccines during all the MADNESS of the Coronavirus.

“It will be very difficult for people to differentiate between flu symptoms and Covid-19,” says Doug, the Wellness and Healthcare Director of Kroger health. For this very specific reason, it is very important for Americans to have a flu shot. Since the internet will never stay behind whenever its help is needed, they have also designed online portals for people to get online help or book their flu shots online. We can also have easy access to them on krogerhealth.com/flu.

WHERE CAN YOU FIND THESE FLU SHOTS

These flu shots are available at:

  1. All 2200 pharmacies of Kroger health.
  2. 230 Clinics that Kroger health owns across 35 states.
  3. They will also be available on larger venues like OHIO STATE FAIRGROUNDS, SALEM CIVIC CENTRE, THE INDIANAPOLIS ZOO.
  4. Drive-thru flu shots will be also available in 19 regions.

Being a good guy, Kroger’s health allows any other organization or company to join it for the sake of other people. When you do good, good comes to you too. At the end of the day, let us hope that this nightmare named Covid-19 leaves the world for good or at least we discover a vaccine for it. Until then I pray that Kroger’s health keeps striving the way it already is.

HOW A PANDEMIC HAS CHANGED THE WAY WE SHOP?

Kroger

A company as big as Kroger doesn’t need an introduction but JUST IN CASE. It is ranked as the 5th largest retail company in the world. Maintained its rank throughout its 137 years of being born. Even though it started in a small town in Ohio, it just took it some time to spread around the world and mark its name. It gives out the best service along with the best of products.

COVID-19

Earlier in 2020, the world was taken by a storm when a deadly disease entered the premises. Almost the whole world was on lockdown, businesses around the world were shut down. Coronavirus can spread easily through touch, so anyone around you has the disease you would be affected immediately by it. With no vaccine and with a thousand medical strategies gone to waste, Covid-19 has also taken people’s loved ones away from them.

Changes in the way we shop

There is no doubt that people are shopping differently. People aren’t going to the stores as frequently.” Says Kroger’s Chairman and CEO Rodney McMullen.

Since the disease could spread so easily, by any physical touch. As per Government orders and also for people’s own safety they were under lockdown with restrictions of not going out as much as they used to.

People started their businesses online also they started shopping online no matter if it was for groceries or anything else. The Internet has to be one of the man’s greatest inventions, everything is just a touch away.

Kroger’s online business and investments

Over the years, as time went by, the advancements in technology took place and people started their business not only in specified areas in a capital but they also started their businesses online as well. And Kroger, being the mind star that it is, made investments in their technology and digital platforms.

As stated by CEO AND CHAIRMAN OF KROGER, “When COVID started, our online business increased over-night and everything was able to support that because of the digital investments we made.”

Kroger has provided online platforms to its customers and maintained its image as the largest retail company in the world, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS!

It has provided its customers with such an online experience that they feel like they are physically in a store even though they don’t want to be. For these tremendous online treatments that they have given their customers, it had helped it increase their whole year sales. Always staying on the top, Kroger outlined 13% growth in identical sales, earning a 40% – 50% share per growth.

Their partnership to encourage Kroger’s heroes

Kroger has been successful for years not only because the company gave its best but also the employees gave their best too. “A star quality” is something that not all employees are fond of. But Kroger sure beats the heat here as well.

They have partnered together to honor their employees for the great work that they have been doing especially in 2020 which is actually a YEAR OF PANDEMIC. They have stood together and given the best of their best.

You might be wondering who these local heroes might be? Well, the heroes of this week include:

  1. Brandon Heston, Ralphs’s store leader, Gardena CA. He continued going to college while working as a full-time inclusive manager. He also learned Spanish just to have better communication, providing promotion to 15 associates.
  2. Mary Marcu, Smith’s Associate, LV. Media is a big platform where it gives chances to people around the world. She uploaded the dance-off of her and her team where they were celebrating their hard work. (Dance is the best way to express ourselves.)
  3. Regina Johnson, Kroger Associate, Nashville, Tennessee. Till now she has given her 35 years of hard work and service to Kroger. She is said to provide joy to anyone who comes along this journey of hers. Well, who doesn’t love a person full of light?
  4. Ken Coleman, Recruiter, Novi, MI. He is a CAPTIAN leading a team of 6400 people. He hired them in the early months of Covid-19.
  5. Kelly Greene, Smith’s bakery leader, LV. She delivered food to people with high-risk for the disease during the early days of the spread of the virus.

Leading when a world is literally on fire due to an ongoing pandemic is hard. But the Kroger employees have given their best even during this time. And yet we still wonder what makes Kroger the best? In my opinion, Kroger is a family and family is nothing without giving their bests when time is hard. And Kroger family has proved in ways we CAN’T OBJECT!
