If you’ve been laid off due to the efforts of stopping the spread of the coronavirus, your local grocery store may be an option in the interim.

According to ABC12, both Meijer and Kroger are in desperate need of help to keep up with the demand that the coronavirus has created.

Meijer announced on their Facebook page earlier this week that they would be hiring seasonal help, so they could better address the demands of their customers. Those interested in apply can go HERE.

Similarly, Kroger also has immediate openings available locally. You can learn more HERE.
