The Kroger Co. Family of Companies announced Friday that it will provide a special thank you pay to hourly frontline grocery, supply chain, manufacturing, pharmacy and call center associates to “acknowledge their dedication to maintaining safe, clean and stocked stores.”

Kroger’s Chairman and CEO Rodney McMullen said the company wanted to recognize and thank its workers for their “incredible work during this historic time.” The company said in a release they offered out special pay in March, April and May.

The one-time thank you pay will be $400 for qualified full-time associates and $200 for qualified part-time associates and will be paid out in two installments on May 30 and June 18.

This would include the Owen’s store in Warsaw.
