Post-Harvey grocery shopping just got a lot easier. As of Friday evening, nearly all of Kroger's 110 Houston-area stores have resumed normal hours and operations, according to a company spokesperson.

Some stores may, however, continue to adjust hours in accordance with local curfews.

Only the chain's Champion Forest at Cypresswood and Cypresswood at Highway 249 stores, which suffered extensive damage from Harvey, remain closed. The grocer said it is already working on plans to repair and re-open those two locations.

Over the last three days, Kroger has shipped 800 truckloads of product into the Houston area to replenish shelves after the rush to stock up last week before the storm hit.

Kroger has also established a Hurricane Harvey Rx Hotline at 844-849-6807 for customers need to refill or transfer prescriptions quickly.

As the region works to rebuild following the destructive storm, Kroger said it has donated truckloads of food to the Houston Food Bank and a truckload of bottled water to Beaumont, which remains without running water.
