ST. LOUIS, Sept. 27, 2021 – To show appreciation to teammates for their continued service to customers during the COVID-19 pandemic, Schnucks is awarding eligible store and facility teammates a performance and retention bonus. Teammates who qualify could receive up to $600 in a one-time bonus paying out in January 2022. The performance and retention bonus will be based on hours worked. This is the fourth bonus Schnucks has issued to teammates since the spring of 2020.     

“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our teammates have remained committed to our customers and our communities,” said Ted Schnuck, Executive Vice President, Supermarkets. “As we look ahead to the busy holiday season, we are acknowledging their contributions and are thankful for their continued efforts to help us nourish people’s lives.”
