Some of Kroger’s subsidiaries – Harris Teeter, QFC and Fred Meyer – are ending 24-hour service in some cities to allow work crews to clean and restock stores amid the growing coronavirus outbreak.

“We are focused on having clean, open and stocked stores for our customers and some 24-hour store locations are making this decision based on local circumstances,” Kroger officials told The Cincinnati Enquirer, part of the USA TODAY Network, Saturday. “We will continue to make decisions that allow us to operate efficiently to serve our customers and support our associates.”

So far, all QFC stores, based in the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Oregon), have moved away from open 24 hours. Most Fred Meyer stores in the same region have followed suit. Harris Teeter, based in North Carolina and serving the Southeast from Florida to Washington, D.C., has also opted to close nightly.
