PHOENIX — After holding a hiring fair in May, Fry's Food Stores will hold another statewide hiring event on Thursday, June 10, where it hopes to fill 1,000 positions.

Positions include department managers, all-purpose and retail clerks, deli clerks, pharmacy technicians, and e-commerce clerks, people to help prepare and deliver online grocery orders, according to Fry's career website.

Those interested can register and apply online at or visit their local store. Fry's is part of Kroger.

Bashas', which also owns Food City and AJ's Fine Foods in Arizona, held a hiring fair back in May with the hopes of filling 700 positions at its grocery stores and its distribution center.

Many industries, including bars, restaurants, and hotels, have expressed a difficult time finding enough people to fill positions as COVID-19 restrictions have eased. At the same time, many people are believed to have left those industries for other jobs amid the pandemic and the ongoing debate between wages and benefits.
