All 80 teammates will have the option to transfer to other Schnucks locations or receive severance

BETTENDORF, Iowa, June 12, 2020 – Schnuck Markets, Inc. today announced that its 61,000-square-foot Bettendorf, Iowa store, located at 858 Middle Road, will permanently close at 6 p.m. on Sunday, August 16. All of the store’s 80 teammates will be offered transfers to other Schnucks stores and will retain their same rate of pay should they choose to transfer. Those who choose not to transfer to another Schnucks location will receive a severance package. Schnucks opened its Bettendorf store in May 2005. 

“Our teammates have put forth a great effort and have been proud to contribute to the Bettendorf community; unfortunately, the store has simply not been profitable,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “While this was not a decision we made lightly, we know our teammates’ contributions – as individuals and as a team – will be long remembered among their loyal Schnucks customers in the area.”

Schnucks Bettendorf customers will continue to earn Schnucks Rewards points until Tuesday, July 21, and can redeem their accrued Schnucks Rewards points through Sunday, August 16. After this time, customers can continue to enjoy earning and redeeming Schnucks Rewards points at any other Schnucks location
