Schnucks South City Celebrates Completion of Major Remodel
ST. LOUIS – Customers and teammates of Schnucks South City will come together for a ribbon cutting on Friday, Dec. 6 at 8:30 a.m. to celebrate the completion of the store’s extensive remodel.
The store, located at 3430 S. Grand (63118), will host storewide sampling throughout the weekend as well as an “Explore the Store” sweepstakes where customers can register to win great prizes. As an added bonus, the 14’-tall, Schnucks Big Cart will be on the store’s parking lot all day Friday.
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay, Alderwoman Jennifer Florida and other key leaders are expected to attend.
Chairman and CEO Scott Schnuck says, “We are excited to invite our customers in to see the store’s transformation. Investing in this store community is one of the best ways to celebrate our company’s 75th Anniversary year in 2014. Schnucks started as a 1,000-square-foot corner confectionery in North St. Louis in 1939. Today, we are proud to serve St. Louis City customers at nine locations.”
According to Store Manager Nick Collora, the entire store has been renovated from floor to ceiling. “Our customers and teammates are raving about the new look and new shopping experience,” Collora said. “We started with new shelving and refrigeration and updated the lighting and décor throughout the store. Our dairy, frozen foods and liquor departments were expanded to allow for more product variety.”
“On the fresh side, we’ve expanded the food bar, deli and seafood department which now includes a brand new sushi bar and daily fish fry. The floral department has been upgraded and relocated while the bakery now includes muffin and bulk cookie carts,” Collora added. “We have also upgraded and reconfigured the pharmacy and service center.”
Alderwoman Florida said, “Once again, Schnucks demonstrates its commitment to excellence and quality service by its recent investment and renovation to our Schnucks at Grand and Gravois! I am so looking forward to shopping at this location.”
The 74,000-square-foot Schnucks South City store opened in 1990. The store was last remodeled in 2000.
