ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) --Three area Schnucks stores closed on Sunday, November 10.
In a release, Schnucks officials said locations in St. Peters, O’Fallon, Missouri and Edwardsville, Illinois closed due to poor sales.
The location in St. Peters is at 100 Jungermann Road, the O’Fallon location is at 1421 Mexico Loop Road East, and the Edwardsville location is at 2122 Troy Road.
Officials said the St. Peters store is within almost three miles of two other Schnucks stores and the O'Fallon and Edwardsville ones are within less than a mile from another Schnucks stores.
Approximately 190 employees at the three stores will all be offered transfers to other nearby Schnucks stores where they will retain the same rate of pay.
“Our customers have overwhelmingly chosen to visit neighboring Schnucks stores much more frequently than these locations, and as difficult as it is to have to close a store, we simply cannot operate locations that are not profitable,” said Schnucks Chairman & CEO Todd Schnuck. “While these decisions are never easy, we are grateful that we are able to preserve our teammates’ jobs and pay.”
