LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 24, 2022) — Everyone is busy juggling work and home responsibilities, grocery shopping being one of those chores. Now, University of Kentucky employees and students can check this shopping job off their list before heading home.

UK and Kroger have partnered to add the southwest corner of the Kroger Field Orange Lot as a pick-up location for online grocery orders. 

Online grocery shopping has grown in popularity in recent years, whether one does all their shopping online, or simply uses the service to purchase a few last-minute items. The process of online ordering is easy. 

Simply create an account by visiting Add a payment method and choose your preferred pick-up location. The Kroger Field location is listed as “Hometown Pickup – Kroger Field.” Add items to your cart, choose your desired pick-up time and check out.

Pick-up days and times for the Orange Lot are currently as follows, and were designed to coincide as closely as possible with employee work schedules:

  • Mondays: 4-8 p.m.;
  • Thursdays: 4-8 p.m.;
  • Fridays: 5-7 p.m.; and
  • Saturdays: 9 a.m.-noon.

Your groceries will be ready at your chosen pick-up time. Signed parking spaces for temporary pick-up purposes are located nearby.
