Schnuck to close Edwardsville store, two others on Nov. 10

Schnuck Markets Inc. today announced that it will close three St. Louis-area stores at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10.

The three stores are:
● St. Peters, Mo. – 100 Jungermann Road, 63376
● O’Fallon, Mo. – 1421 Mexico Loop Road East, 63366
● Edwardsville – 2122 Troy Road, 62025

The approximately 190 teammates at the three stores will all be offered transfers to other nearby
Schnucks stores where they will retain the same rate of pay.

The stores are closing due to poor sales. The St. Peters store is within approximately three miles of
two other Schnucks locations, while the O’Fallon, Mo., and Edwardsville stores are each less
than one mile away from another Schnucks.

In Edwardsville’s case, the two stores operate within a few hundred yards of each others, separated by Governors’ Parkway. The one to be closed is a former Shop ‘n Save location that Schnuck owns, and a tenant is being sought. The one remaining opened originally as a Schnucks and is undergoing extensive remodeling.

Customers and employees in Edwardsville had expected that one of those stores would be closed since the purchase of 19 Shop n Save locations by Schnuck from Super Valu last year.

“Our customers have overwhelmingly chosen to visit neighboring Schnucks stores much more
frequently than these locations, and as difficult as it is to have to close a store, we simply cannot
operate locations that are not profitable,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “While
these decisions are never easy, we are grateful that we are able to preserve our teammates’ jobs
and pay, and grateful that our customers won’t have to travel far to visit us at other nearby
Schnucks stores.”
Pharmacy customers at all three stores will see signage in the coming days indicating the dates
that pharmacy prescriptions will transfer to other nearby Schnucks Pharmacies:
● St. Peters prescriptions will transfer to Schnucks Mid Rivers (577 Mid RIvers Mall Drive, 63376)
● O’Fallon (Mexico Loop) prescriptions will transfer to Schnucks O’Fallon (8660 Veterans
Memorial Parkway, 63028)
● Edwardsville prescriptions will transfer to the other Schnucks Edwardsville location (2222 Troy Road, 62025)

Pharmacy patients may also visit any other Schnucks Pharmacy to have their prescriptions filled.
(Customers may also choose to transfer their prescriptions to a non-Schnucks pharmacy as well.)

The company owns the Edwardsville location and is currently seeking a tenant for the property.
The St. Peters and O’Fallon stores are leased.

Following these closures, Schnucks will operate 112 stores, including 82 in the St. Louis metropolitan
area.
