With the deepest gratitude to team members, Raley’s Chairman, Michael Teel, and CEO, Keith Knopf, announced a one-time reward for all hourly employees in a letter and video.

This reward recognizes the dedication team members have shown across store operations and other support services throughout the past two weeks. This reward is tied to individual hours worked and will vary but is expected to average about $500 per team member. Team members will receive the reward on April 3.

In addition to a reward, we have reaffirmed our commitment to team member safety. This includes ongoing sanitation, an emphasis on social distancing and supplementing pay and benefits for team members afflicted with COVID-19. We have successfully hired 700 team members across the company footprint to support the increased workload, many of which are being trained in store today.
