Schnuck Markets to Expand to Jasper, Indiana, With New “Schnucks Fresh” Store
JASPER, IN - As the grocery sector remains a hot spot for innovation and growth, Schnuck Markets has thrown its hat in the ring once again as it revealed plans to unveil a new format grocery location. The “Schnucks Fresh” store, as it’s been named, will be located in Jasper, Indiana, and will place a heavy focus on fresh departments such as produce, bakery, meat, and seafood.
“We’re excited to expand into the Jasper community and to be able to continue on our company’s mission to Nourish People’s Lives in an area new to Schnucks,” said Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “As a new format for us, ‘Schnucks Fresh’ will be a store that customers will be able to quickly and easily navigate where they will find an extensive selection of the same fresh products for which Schnucks is known throughout the Midwest.”
The new location will be 18,000 square feet and is expected to open in summer of 2021, as noted by the company in a statement.
Joining six other Schnucks markets in Indiana, the market will add 30 new associates to the already 795 teammates employed in the area. Hiring will begin for the new store approximately six weeks ahead of the store opening, with more details shared once the company finalizes its plans.
As more updates on the store’s opening become available, ANUK will continue to report.
