Schnucks plans to open its second Eatwell Market location on March 29 in Chesterfield, Missouri.
The 30,000-square-foot store will emphasize local offerings in addition to natural and organic foods. It will also host community events to support customers.
“We look forward to introducing St. Louis-area customers to our Eatwell Market, which will bring them a ‘beyond the expected’ shopping experience,” said Schnucks chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck in a statement. “This store will allow us to build on our mission to Nourish People’s Lives by offering shoppers a store where they can stay focused on health and wellness while also discovering new, local items.”
Eatwell Market will carry thousands of natural and organic items throughout the store. The produce department will emphasize organically grown offerings but also provide conventionally grown fruits and vegetables. The store’s meat department will specialize in products raised without added antibiotics or growth hormones.
It will also showcase made-to-order options including pastas, pizzas, sandwiches, and salads. Other offerings will include store-cut specialty cheeses and charcuterie, an olive bar, and an AI-powered Picadeli “smart salad bar” that employs a digital food freshness system, digital labels, and cooling algorithms.
Additional amenities will include bulk foods such as nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and grains, as well as freshly ground nut butters and a made-to-order drink area specializing in single-serve offerings of smoothies, coffee, tea, beer, and wine.
The store will offer both Schnucks Delivers and Curbside Pickup through the company’s partnership with Instacart.
