The new Schnucks Fresh store in Jasper, IN, will open to customers Aug. 18. A new format for Schnucks, the leased 18,000-square-foot store will include a heavy focus on fresh departments such as produce, meat, seafood, deli and bakery.
“We’re always excited to grow and expand our business by bringing Schnucks’ fresh quality products to new customers in a new market,” said Todd Schnuck, Schnucks chairman and CEO. “Our mission at Schnucks is to nourish people’s lives, and Jasper customers will soon find out that we do this by not only making sure to address the food needs of our customers but also by nurturing the communities that we serve.”
The store will employ approximately 30 people. Leading the team at Schnucks Fresh and relocating to Jasper from Columbia, IL, is Store Manager Ted Walker. Walker is a 40-year grocery veteran and has been with Schnucks since 2008.
“Customers new to Schnucks will soon find out that fresh is what we do best, and in Jasper, it’s right there in our name,” Walker said. “We’re anxious to get this store open so that we can bring our new neighbors fresh options that they will be proud to serve to their families.”
Upon opening, and in partnership with Instacart, Schnucks Fresh will offer customers a curbside pickup option. Jasper location will mark Schnucks’ seventh Indiana store joining six others in the Evansville area.
