Stores will open 63 hours after Schnucks takes possession
ST. LOUIS – Schnuck Markets, Inc. today announced opening dates and regular operating hours for nine of 20 recently acquired Shop ‘n Save locations (19 supermarkets and one standalone pharmacy) in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Each store will be closed for about two and a half days before reopening as Schnucks. During the transition, Schnucks will switch out point-of-sale systems, rebrand signage, and restock merchandise. More significant remodeling is scheduled to take place in the near future.
“We know that customers want to quickly return to their neighborhood store to shop for their families, so our teams will be working around the clock to transition these stores in a period of just 63 hours each, and we’ll focus on more extensive upgrades in the coming months,” said Schnucks President and COO Dave Peacock. “While the transition will take place quickly, we want customers to know that on day one they can expect to see fully-stocked shelves, and friendly, familiar faces, since many Shop ‘n Save employees at the acquired stores have accepted offers to join the Schnucks team.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
While the stores will be closed during the brief transition period, existing pharmacy customers will still be able to drop off and pick up prescriptions between the hours of 9 am and 9 pm.
Pharmacy customers should check in with store security who will then escort the customers to the pharmacy. At the St. John, Fenton, and St. Charles stores, customers also have the convenient option of visiting the drive-through pharmacy lanes.
Schnucks is continuing to evaluate operational requirements for all acquired fuel centers, and as a result, has not yet set opening dates for the fuel centers at the St. Ann and St. John stores.
Opening dates for the remaining 11 acquired locations will be announced in the near future.
