GEORGETOWN, Ohio — Kroger is breaking new retail ground in Brown County.

The company has established a satellite clicklist pickup location at the Georgetown Behavioral Hospital from its Mt. Orab store -- the location is the first of its kind in the entire country.

“We are trying to meet the needs of our customers in the context of where they are in their daily lives. Georgetown seemed like the right place to try this new process,” said Erin Rolfes, Corporate Affairs Manager of the Kroger Cincinnati-Dayton division. She added that further expansion of the program both locally and nationally will depend on the reaction of the public to this first location.

Customers can use the Georgetown location by accessing the Kroger app on their phones. Pickups can be scheduled at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm seven days a week at this point. EBT and SNAP payments cannot be used at this time, but Rolfes said the company is working on that.

“If demand increases, we will be happy to increase the number of pickup times available,” Rolfes said.
