Grocery stores such as Albertsons are hiring as more employees are needed to help meet the high demand amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) many businesses are closing increasing unemployment but some grocery stores such as Albertsons are hoping to hire those who have been laid off.
