Schnucks to launch new EatWell banner

eatwellSchnuck Markets Inc. is introducing a new store format in Columbia, MO, focused on consumers prioritizing health and wellness, natural foods, and the occasional splurge. EatWell, A Natural Food Store by Schnucks, will open in early summer 2020. The location was formerly a Lucky’s Market before Schnucks purchased it during a bankruptcy auction earlier this year. Schnucks is currently remodeling the 42,000-square-foot store in preparation for the new format.

“We’re celebrating 50 years of serving Columbia customers, and their loyalty over these last five decades makes this a perfect place for Schnucks to try something new with our EatWell store,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “Our mission as a company is to nourish people’s lives and we’re excited to be able to build on that mission by launching a store where it’s easy to make healthier choices, while still also being able to pick up a few decadent treats for those special occasions that may be worth the extra calories.”

In addition to offering natural food items, the neighborhood store will also include a focus on organic and local items, and feature a natural living department in which teammates can assist customers with choosing options that fit a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

EatWell will employ approximately 80 teammates, most of whom have already joined the company from Lucky’s, though there are still jobs available. EatWell will be the second Schnucks-owned store in Columbia. The other store employs 110 teammates and will continue to provide traditional supermarket offerings as well as Schnucks exclusive signature items.
