Customer Capacity Limits: Beginning April 7, the Kroger Co. will begin to limit the number of customers to 50% of the international building code’s calculated capacity to allow for proper physical distancing in every store.
- As an illustration, the standard building capacity for a grocery store is 1 person per 60 square feet. Under Kroger’s new reduced capacity limits, the number will be 1 person per 120 square feet.
- We’ll monitor the number of customers per square foot in our stores using our industry-leading QueVision technology, which already provides a count of the customers entering and exiting stores.
