COLUMBIA, Mo. – Schnuck Markets, Inc. today announced the opening of Schnucks Express, located at 111 South Providence Road in Columbia (65203). Schnucks Express, which features its own entrance but is also conveniently connected to EatWell, A Natural Food Store by Schnucks, includes items that offer customers a complete grocery experience and focuses on the many customer favorites that are available at traditional Schnucks stores throughout the Midwest.
“After listening to our customers’ feedback, we’ve learned that they enjoy the natural and organic offerings available at EatWell but also are seeking the convenience of conventional grocery items,” said Schnucks Senior Director of EatWell/Health & Wellness David Isinghood. “We invite our customers to stop in and see both the expanded selection of traditional customer favorites as well as the enhanced shopping experience of the natural and Good For You items at EatWell/Schnucks Express.”
Schnucks Express occupies approximately 11,000 square feet of the 42,000-square-foot building, with an interior connection to EatWell, and is now open and serving customers. All updates to the store are expected to be complete later this fall. Store hours for both locations will remain 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily.
