"Schnucks was a standout," said Liza Zimmerman, Leaders editor of Market Watch. "The Leaders category covers retailers of any size from large chains to mom-and-pop stores. Schnucks was noted for its huge volume and great selection. It is seen as an important part of the community. Schnucks stood out to editors making the selection." "Our success is a result of the combined dedication of our store management teams and our merchandising department to provide the selection our customers want," said Rick Frede, vice president for grocery, dairy and frozen foods.
Schnuck Markets operates liquor departments in 88 of the 90 stores it operates in Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. The family-owned company was founded in St. Louis in 1939.
