Schnuck Markets to Bring 80 New Jobs, Third Supermarket to Columbia, Missouri
48,000-square-foot store will be located on the city’s northeast side 

COLUMBIA, Mo., Sept. 8, 2020 – After opening EatWell, A Natural Food Store by Schnucks, in June, Schnuck Markets, Inc. today announced the company plans to open a third Columbia, Missouri store in spring 2021, subject to the landlord closing on the acquisition of the property. The store will add approximately 80 new jobs to the Columbia economy and will be located on the southwest corner of Clark Lane and St. Charles Road. Construction on the development is anticipated to begin this fall. The leased, 48,000-square-foot store will include a heavy focus on fresh departments such as produce, meat, seafood and bakery. 

“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.” 

Hiring at the new store will begin approximately six weeks ahead of the store’s opening. More details on the hiring process will be shared once the company finalizes the store’s opening date. The existing Schnucks store at 1400 Forum Blvd and the EatWell store at 111 South Providence Road currently employ 183 teammates combined. The company also operates a store in nearby Jefferson City that employs 82 teammates.
