Schnucks Announces Construction of One Million Square Foot Warehouse
ST. LOUIS, MO - Schnuck Markets announced today that it is on the hunt for a proper site in St. Louis to build a new million square-foot warehouse. To put into perspective just how massive a structure that would be, 17 football fields could fit comfortably inside the new warehouse with room to spare. According to St. Louis Today, this would more than double Schnuck's current storage space in the area.
Once completed, Schnucks intends for the new facility to replace its current Bridgeton warehouse, which the company has outgrown, despite two expansions since 1971. Schnucks currently expects the new warehouse to be operational by the summer of 2016.
According to St. Louis Today, Schnucks will be hiring an independent company to manage and staff the new warehouse, although it will still be closely involved in the design of the massive project. In the meantime the Bridgetown facility will continue to operate as usual. Once the new warehouse is finished, Schnucks intends to keep it open, albeit with a smaller operation than it is currently responsible for.
Congratulations on the commencement of this impressive undertaking, Schnucks!
