King Soopers stops giving coins as change

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - King Soopers customers will stop getting coins handed back to them in change starting Monday and Tuesday.

Kroger, the owner of King Soopers, said the change regarding change was because of a nationwide coin shortage.

According to Kroger, until the coin shortage abates, customers will have two options when it comes to receiving money back in change.

The remaining amount can be added to a customer's loyalty card and will be applied to their next Kroger purchase.

You can also 'round-up' your purchase total to donate the change to the Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Foundation.

  1. I can see toilet paper being horded. I need all these pennies and nickles to make it through the corona….. lol

  2. If I am owed change, don’t have a KingSoopers member card, and don’t wish to donate, they better find some coinage to return to me!
