After announcing last fall that Schnucks’ Belleville East (110 Carlyle Plaza Drive) would close in early 2019, Schnuck Markets, Inc. today announced a closing date and time of Sunday, March 24 at 6 p.m.
All associates will be offered positions at nearby Schnucks stores. The company will continue to operate two stores in Belleville, along with 16 other Metro East area stores.
Upon closing, and with no action required by pharmacy customers, Belleville East pharmacy prescriptions will automatically transfer to the Schnucks Belleville store at 800 Carlyle Avenue.
A major renovation of the newly-acquired Carlyle Avenue store is nearing completion and includes a new pharmacy, meat and seafood service counter, and floral department. Customers will also see upgrades and expansions to the produce, deli, and bakery departments at the 61,500 square-foot store.
Schnucks acquired the Belleville East location in the 1995 acquisition of National Supermarkets.
The store originally opened in 1994.
