As staffers need time away from work to tend to their children, or they become ill, supermarket companies are speeding up hiring to have workers able to fulfill eCommerce orders or operate stores. The leaders of big chains had a call with the White House on Sunday in which they asked President Donald Trump to tell U.S. consumers to refrain from stockpiling merchandise and noted they were committed to remaining in operation, The Dallas Morning News reported. Chief executives for Tom Thumb/Albertsons and Kroger, among other leaders, told the president that shoppers are putting pressure on the supply chain and purchasing three to five times typical volumes.
