to Schnucks President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Schnuck,
the Westfall Plaza Schnucks will be a 63,000-square-foot market store similar

very popular with our shoppers at our prior locations," Schnuck said.
"The Dellwood and Jennings
stores are just three miles apart, and the new store is located almost exactly
halfway between them," Schnuck added. "We believe that this store location along
with its expanded services and customer-friendly floor plan will not only allow
us to better serve current customers but also help attract many new ones."
Stein, a 33-year Schnucks veteran and formally store manager at the Jennings store, will take the
helm at Westfall Plaza.
Co-Manager Jane Wilcox and an experienced management team
will assist Stein.

personally greeting as many customers as possible, both current and new, over
the next few weeks."
