Specialty Food Association

Schnuck Markets, Inc. plans to bring a new format store to Jasper, Indiana in the summer of 2021. The 18,000-square-foot Schnucks Fresh store will include a heavy focus on fresh departments such as produce, meat, seafood, and bakery.

“We’re excited to expand into the Jasper community and to be able to continue on our company’s mission to Nourish People’s Lives in an area new to Schnucks,” said Schnucks chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck, in a statement. “As a new format for us, Schnucks Fresh will be a store that customers will be able to quickly and easily navigate where they will find an extensive selection of the same fresh products for which Schnucks is known throughout the Midwest.”

The Jasper location will mark Schnucks’ seventh Indiana store, joining six others in the Evansville area that currently employ 795. The new store will add approximately 30 jobs to the local economy.

In addition, Schnucks is working with RangeMe to find local suppliers and expand the presence of their products in Schnucks stores throughout the Midwest. Schnucks merchandising leaders will be working to identify those suppliers that are located within 125 miles of a Schnucks store or in one of the four states served by Schnucks.

“Our emphasis on local products connects us with the many communities throughout the areas we serve and introduces our customers to local treasures that can be found right in their own backyard,” said Schnucks deli category manager Andy DeCou, in a statement. “Our communities depend on local businesses and they depend on us to get their goods into the hands of customers.”
