Extensive Remodel Underway At Richmond Center Schnucks

RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Mo. – An extensive remodel is underway at one of St. Louis’ busiest Schnucks stores!  Upgrades throughout the Richmond Center store, located at 6600 Clayton Road (63117), are expected to continue throughout summer with completion projected for early fall.

 

According to Store Manager Jerry Lueders, associates are excited and are fielding questions from customers who are wondering just what is going on at their Schnucks.  “You can’t help but wonder what’s happening when a whole wall is moved,” Lueders laughed.  “This is one of the most extensive remodels our engineering team has undertaken, and when it’s complete, we really will be able to demonstrate our food and culinary expertise.  Our customers will think they’re shopping in a whole new store!” 

“New departments, fixtures, lighting and flooring have been designed to give the store a brighter, more upscale look to complement the types of services we will be adding,” Lueders explained.

 

The remodeled deli department will feature Boar’s Head premium deli meats and cheeses, a made-to-order Sandwich Express bar and an expanded hot carryout foods section perfect for on-the-go customers.  The deli’s specialty cheese section will feature cheeses from around the world.  The cheeses will pair well with selections from the wine and liquor department which will be nearly doubled in size to accommodate special fixtures that allow the horizontal display of high-end wines.

 

The meat and seafood departments will be upgraded to enhance customer service and a new shrimp and seafood soup bar will be added.

 

Coffee lovers will find a Kaldi’s Coffee shop with free Wi-Fi access and seating while those wanting to learn a quick recipe still will be able to enjoy the Schnucks Cooks kiosk with accompanying dishware, cookware and kitchen accessories section.

 

“We appreciate our customers’ patience during construction, and we think they’ll be quite satisfied when they see everything that the ‘new’ store has to offer,” Lueders said.

 

Schnucks acquired the 66,600-square-foot Richmond Center store while it was under construction as part of the 1995 National acquisition.  The store opened to customers on Aug. 1 of that year and was last remodeled in 2001.

 

Founded in St. Louis in 1939, Schnuck Markets, Inc. operates 105 stores (including five Logli stores) and 101 pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi.
