King Soopers Jobs Spared From Photo Lab Closures

King Soopers jobs (Click here) were spared as the company did away with its photo labs.

Earlier this year, King Soopers announced that it would close all of the company's photo labs by February 5th, citing the increasing popularity of digital photography and the need for more retail space throughout the stores.

"As digital continues to become more popular, we have made the difficult decision to close our photo labs," King Soopers Spokeswoman Kelli McGannon told "By doing so, we will be able to utilize this retail space to expand our core grocery business that will add to our customers' shopping experience."

Fortunately, the decision to close the photo labs did not result in any job losses. Traditionally, photo lab managers would be given the option of being laid off, taking a pay cut, or taking the position of the least senior person who would in turn be let go.

However, King Soopers allowed these employees to instead become part-time all purpose clerks, or fill any checking or night crew positions available. Another bonus - employees were allowed to maintain their current pay rate of $16.81 per hour, according to the United Food & Commercial Workers Union Local 7.

King Soopers is a brand of Cincinnati-based Kroger Company, one of the largest retail grocery store chains in the nation, with sales of $82.2 billion last year. The company operates a variety of stores in a number of different states throughout the country.
