Houston, Texas – April 12, 2018 – The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) announced that its family of stores is hiring to fill an estimated 11,000 positions in its supermarket divisions, including nearly 2,000 management positions.

The Kroger family of stores created 10,000 new jobs in 2017 and 12,000 in 2016.

In addition to job creation, Kroger is investing an incremental $500 million in associate wages, training and development over the next three years, as part of Restock Kroger. Kroger has also committed to invest a significant portion of the tax benefit it received from the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in associates’ future, which the company plans to announce in detail this month.
