Indianapolis Kroger store employee assists man with visual impairment in viral photo
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 15, 2016) – A photo of an Indianapolis Kroger employee assisting a visually impaired gentleman is going viral. The photo was first posted to the Facebook page Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. on Valentine’s Day by Ashlee Fujawa, Director of Public Relations at Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc.
Fujawa was shopping at the Kroger store near the intersection of East 65th Street and Keystone Avenue when she saw a visually impaired man waiting for assistance at the service desk. She made small talk with the gentleman as they stood among the Valentine’s Day decor and discount candy.
A young man gathering carts in the parking lot approached them; the employee told the man that his name was Colin, and he said he would be happy to help the man as he shopped.
The two then set off into the store together, and Colin guided the cart and discussed the man’s shopping list with him.
Fujawa later found out that Colin has helped the man shop at the Kroger store many times.
Fujawa writes, “Not only is this the epitome of amazing customer service, but a heartfelt display of respect and kindness. So on a day where love is celebrated, this is a true testament to why we love this city–the amazing people who make Indy great.”
