Last week H-E-B announced that it would be extending store hours, reversing some of the shortened hours it originally put in place to help associates stock shelves and sanitize stores, and now some other retailers are doing the same.

Stater Bros., and its nearly 170 stores will increase hours from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., keeping a first hour of shopping for seniors and shoppers at risk of the coronavirus.

H-E-B hours have been adjusted to 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mi Tienda stores will carry the same extended hours, and for Central Market stores, the hours will be slightly different from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Additionally, some Kroger stores or banners shifted store hours by an hour or two in certain regions but most stores continue to run 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
