There’s both good news and bad news that Kroger shoppers will want to know about!

Let’s start with the good news: The supermarket chain told Clark.com that it just lowered prices at 188 of its Atlanta Division stores, which includes Georgia, South Carolina and Eastern Alabama locations.

We noticed the signage for the lower prices during our recent price comparison of Kroger versus Publix.

Kroger’s Atlanta Division is discontinuing Senior Day

Now, the bad news. As a result of this pricing change, Kroger is discontinuing Senior Day at the 188 locations that are part of the Atlanta Division.

Customers are just now getting word of the changes. The program ends May 17.

“We want all customers to save every day of the week regardless of their preferred shopping day,” a Kroger spokesperson said in a statement to Clark.com. “These new lower prices on thousands of items will make the shopping experience easier and a greater value for all Kroger shoppers.”

The program offered seniors a 5% discount on Wednesdays, with some restrictions.

Kroger, which operates nearly 2,800 locations in 35 states under various banners, has already ended the senior discount in some other parts of the country, according to local media reports.

So, your best bet is to check with your neighborhood store to see if Senior Day is sticking around.

These savings strategies are here to stay!

Although this is certainly a disappointment to seniors who are affected by the change, there are still ways to save more and spend less at Kroger every day:

  1. Use your Kroger Plus Card
  2. Get a free item with the Free Friday Download
  3. Watch for 10 for $10 sales
  4. Use digital and print coupons
  5. Buy generic items
  6. Look for manager’s specials
  7. Redeem fuel points
