Kroger celebrates educators and parents with Extra Credit Wednesdays promotion

Kroger is offering more ways to save on back-to-school essentials during its first Teachers and Honorary Teachers savings event this fall. Now through September 9, teachers, school administrators and parents who shop at Kroger on Wednesdays will save an extra 10% on general merchandise, including school and craft supplies, toys, games, sporting goods, housewares, apparel and electronics.


“We’re always excited by back-to-school season,” said Colleen Juergensen, president of Kroger Central Division. “We’re uplifted and encouraged by the enthusiasm for education we see at this time of year. And, especially during this challenging time, Kroger is pleased to offer this discount to teachers and ‘honorary teachers’ as a demonstration of our gratitude for what they do for their students and our communities.”


To receive the Teachers and Honorary Teachers discount, customers can shop in-store at Kroger or via Kroger Pickup using their shopper’s card on any Wednesday during the promotion dates and simply request the discount at checkout.
