Fry’s Food Money Order Policy
Fry’s Food and all Kroger-owned grocery stores sell money orders. The money order service used by Fry’s Food is Western Union, and money orders can be purchased for up to $1,000 each.
Cash is the only accepted payment method for money orders at Fry’s Food. To buy a money order, you’ll need enough cash for the amount of the money order and the fee.
You’ll also need a valid, government-issued photo ID.
You can buy money orders at the Money Services desk by filling out a money order form and presenting it to the cashier.
While Fry’s Food is typically open from 5 a.m. to 12 a.m. seven days a week, the Money Services desk has more limited hours. Typically, you can expect Money Services to be available from 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. If you’re not sure if Money Services will be open, it’s best to call ahead and verify the hours before making a trip.
For customers with a free Fry’s V.I.P. Card, the fee for buying a money order is $0.69 each. You don’t need a V.I.P. Card to purchase a money order, but the fee will be slightly higher without one — usually starting at around $0.80 for every $1,000, according to customer service representatives at Fry’s Food.
