Schnucks Closes Eatwell Markets

Schnucks has closed their Eatwell Market banners after a year in business. The only two locations opened in 2023 and closed their doors on June 2nd. The smaller format stores focused on natural and organic products as well as local specialty items. The St. Louis based grocer closed the stores in Columbia and Chesterfield, Missouri. Todd Schnuck, Chairman and CEO of Schnucks described it as a “great learning platform”. “As a company, we embrace trying new things and learning from our experiences to improve future store designs, operations, merchandising and marketing. Our teams at each Eatwell Market put their best foot forward to nourish the lives of their customers making this a decision that is not made lightly. However, after significant analysis and evaluation of what we could do to make each store more successful during current economic conditions, we concluded the most prudent path forward would be the discontinuation of the Eatwell Banner”.
