Going the distance
"Over the years, many of the Farmington residents who visit our stores in Festus and Cape Girardeau have told us that they drive the distance for our offering of quality products including organic, natural and gluten-free,” CEO Todd Schnuck said in a media statement.
“We are very grateful for their loyalty and support which has fueled our commitment to finding the right opportunity to bring Schnucks to Farmington.”
The Farmington location offers 40,000 SKUs, and a drive-through pharmacy.
The store employs 100 associates and is open from 6 a.m. to midnight each day.
