Schnucks Alton Rings in New Year with Newly Remodeled Store

ALTON, Ill. – Customers and teammates of Schnucks Alton, 2811 Homer Adams Parkway (62002), will celebrate the New Year and a new store remodel with a ribbon cutting on Thursday, Jan. 2 at 9:00 a.m

The store team will serve cake and coffee, and customers will be treated to product sampling throughout the day.  The always popular 14’ Schnucks Big Cart will also be on hand.

“We are excited for our Alton-area customers to see the store’s amazing transformation including new décor and expanded services.  Schnucks has been serving Alton for more than 40 years, and we believe investing in our stores and their communities is one of the best ways to celebrate our company’s 75th Anniversary in 2014,” said Chairman and CEO Scott Schnuck.

Store Manager Paul Goforth said, “Our customers and teammates are raving about the new look and new shopping experience.  Some of the highlights include an expanded meat selection and new bundle pack meats that provide extra savings; a new cook-to-order seafood department means our cooks can now fry or bake seafood purchases at no extra charge.  In bakery, new muffin and gourmet cupcake carts make it easier to pick up fresh baked treats.”

Goforth added, “On the health and nutrition side, we now offer a vast array of gluten-free options and our pharmacy customers now have the convenience of a drive-thru window.  Through generously sharing their requests and suggestions, our customers have helped to shape our new offerings, and we believe, they will see their input reflected in the new design.”

Schnucks has served Alton since 1971.  The current 58,000-square-foot store was purchased from Kroger in 1986 and replaced the original store.  It was last remodeled in 1996. 

Founded in St. Louis in 1939, Schnuck Markets, Inc. is celebrating 75 years of serving customers in 2014.  The family-owned company started with a small confectionery in North St. Louis and now operates 100 stores and 95 in-store pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa.  Follow Schnucks on Facebook at and Schnucks Alton at
