Schnuck Markets will open a third location in Columbia, Mo., after the successful launch of EatWell, a Natural Food Store by Schnucks, earlier this year. The new store is expected to open in spring 2021, subject to the landlord closing on the acquisition of the property.
The new 48,000-square-foot store will be heavily focused on offering fresh departments such as produce, bakery, meat and seafood.
“As shown by the recent EatWell opening and today’s announcement of this new store, Schnucks is committed to nourishing the lives of customers in the Columbia and mid-Missouri communities,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “We’re excited to create a store that our customers will be able to quickly and easily navigate, while still offering an extensive selection of the fresh products for which we’re known.”
The third Schnucks location will add about 80 jobs to the community. The St. Louis-based retailer currently employs more than 180 people at its two existing stores in the city as well as more than 80 in nearby Jefferson City, Mo.
