ST. LOUIS - Schnuck Markets Inc. has announced plans to open a 63,000-square-foot Logli Supermarket in Janesville, Wis. in spring 2002.
The new store will be located in Creston Park Shopping Center on Milton Avenue at Creston Park Drive. The shopping center owner, Learsi & Company of Chicago, Ill., will expand and remodel an existing 50,000-square-foot building for the new store.
Planning for the final store design currently is under way. Construction is expected to begin this summer.
"We are pleased to bring to Janesville residents Logli's outstanding reputation for quality product and exceptional customer service backed by Schnucks' buying power and operating efficiencies," said Craig D. Schnuck, chairman and chief executive officer of Schnuck Markets. "Customers will experience value, top quality and great variety at our new store."
Janesville residents can expect to enjoy an expansive variety of products and convenience services to meet their needs in produce, bakery, deli, liquor and wine, meat, seafood, floral, grocery, frozen food, dairy, general merchandise, health and beauty, and pharmacy departments.
A 63,000-square-foot Logli Supermarket generally employs about 200 to 250 full- and part-time associates. Applications typically are taken six to eight weeks before store opening.
Schnuck Markets employs about 1,500 associates in its four Logli stores located in the Rockford, Ill. area.
