Shrewsbury Shop n’ Save among 19 to be bought by Schnucks


Schnuck Markets on Monday announced that the company has agreed to buy 19 St. Louis-area Shop ‘n Save stores (14 in Missouri and five in Illinois), the company said in a press release.

Among those is the one at 7057 Chippewa Street, on the border of Shrewsbury and the city of St. Louis.

The transaction is expected to begin on October 7 and be completed by late October 2018.

Schnucks plans a closure of about two and a half days for each store – during which time it intends to rebrand signage and fixtures, switch out point-of-sale systems and restock merchandise before the store reopens as a Schnucks, according to the announcement.


  1. What a shame. Apparently Schnuck’s is upset about the national chains taking away their business. There is no longer Kroger, National, A & P, Tom-Boy, few, if any AG and IGA, so, who are they worried about? Apparently, Wal-Mart. I’m sorry we are loosing so many choices. If you don’t like Schnuck’s, Dierberg’s, Wal-Mart, or Target, about all that is left is Aldi’s and Whole Foods. I will really miss Shop n’ Save.

    • Yeah, it is a shame that a local company is willing to keep money in the St. Louis region and employ people from the area. What a shame.

    • Schnucks, Dierbergs, Wal-Mart, Target, Aldi, WF, Lucky’s, Thyme, Trader Joe’s. That’s 9, so that seems like they should have enough competition.
