(WMC-TV) - One of the Mid-South's largest grocery store chains is opening up a job fair to possibly hundreds of potential employees.

Kroger is hosting a job fair at the Marriott East Hotel on Poplar Avenue from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Some think this could not have come at a better time for Shelby County.

According to the US Department of Labor, Shelby County had an unemployment rate of 9.8% in July. That is higher than the state's rate of 8.5% and even higher than the national average of 7.4%.

Kroger representatives have confirmed they are interviewing for all positions. If one is hired, competitive salaries and benefits will be offered.

However, before attending the job fair, Kroger interviewers are requesting applicants to apply online.

Candidates are also required to bring two forms of ID and copies of their resume to the job fair.
