Richmond Heights Schnucks Remodel

Will Enhance Customer Options and Conveniences

RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Mo. - Customers at the Schnucks Supercenter in Richmond Heights will enjoy more product options and conveniences when a remodel now under way at the store is completed in November. The store, opened in 1995, is located at 6600 Clayton Road, just east of Big Bend at Highland Terrace.

Plans for reconfiguring existing space in the 67,000-square-foot store will be concentrated in the nutrition, produce, Chef's Express, deli, general merchandise and liquor departments. The changes will enable Schnucks to offer hundreds of new items to shoppers. The Bank of America branch in the store will undergo a complete remodel.

Craig D. Schnuck, chairman and chief executive officer of Schnuck Markets, Inc., said, "Our remodel includes changes in our Chef's Express and deli departments to expand our healthy pickup-and-go meals for customers. We think our customers will enjoy the one-stop shopping enhancements we have planned."

Store Manager Dave Beckerle added, "We've been able to plan our remodel so customers will enjoy all the benefits of our improvements with none of the disruption. We're dedicated to making that happen."

Schnuck Markets, Inc. currently operates 91 stores in Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. The family-owned company was founded in St. Louis in 1939.
