ST. LOUIS Schnuck Markets has announced plans to create a new “urban prototype unit” in the downtown business area slated to be finished by spring 2009. The company said that the new prototype will measure in at 21,000-square feet, about a third of the size of a typical Schnucks unit.
Store veteran manager Tom Collora has been named as project leader, the company said in recent news reports. Collora has been with Schnuck’s since 1985 when he helped open the first Schnuck’s Arsenal store. He later managed the Arsenal store.
The new urban prototype store will also featured an extended prepared foods section and an in-store pharmacy—the only in-store pharmacy in the downtown St. Louis area.
Schnuck Markets holds more than properties, including 99 pharmacies and 5 Logli stores, throughout Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
