St. Louis, March 6, 2020  – St. Louis-based Schnuck Markets, Inc. today joined with Mahomet IGA owners Brooks and Tammy Marsh to announce that Schnucks has acquired the Mahomet IGA at 202 Eastwood Drive in Mahomet, Ill.

“Our mission is to nourish people’s lives, and we’re excited to be able to bring that philosophy to the people of Mahomet while also adding the store’s employees and their grocery experience to the Schnucks team,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “Brooks and Tammy have operated this store with pride for 15 years, and we look forward to continuing to take care of the store’s longtime customers and welcoming many new ones as well.”
