Schnucks Alton rings in new year with newly remodeled store

Customers and teammates of Schnucks in Alton, IL, will celebrate the new year and a new store remodel with a ribbon cutting Jan. 2.

“We are excited for our Alton-area customers to see the store’s amazing transformation, including new décor and expanded services," Scott Schnuck,chairman and chief executive officer, said in a press release. "Schnucks has been serving Alton for more than 40 years, and we believe investing in our stores and their communities is one of the best ways to celebrate our company’s 75th Anniversary in 2014.”

Store Manager Paul Goforth said, “Our customers and teammates are raving about the new look and new shopping experience. Some of the highlights include an expanded meat selection and new bundle pack meats that provide extra savings; a new cook-to-order seafood department means our cooks can now fry or bake seafood purchases at no extra charge. In bakery, new muffin and gourmet cupcake carts make it easier to pick up fresh baked treats.”

Goforth added, “On the health and nutrition side, we now offer a vast array of gluten-free options and our pharmacy customers now have the convenience of a drive-thru window. Through generously sharing their requests and suggestions, our customers have helped to shape our new offerings, and we believe, they will see their input reflected in the new design.”

Schnucks has served Alton since 1971. The current 58,000-square-foot store was purchased from Kroger in 1986 and replaced the original store. It was last remodeled in 1996.
