The new Schnucks Fresh store, located at 3605 North Newton St. in Jasper, Indiana, will open to customers at 7 a.m. on Aug. 18. A brief ribbon-cutting ceremony will follow at 9 a.m.
A new format for Schnucks, the leased 18,000-square-foot store will include a heavy focus on fresh departments such as produce, meat, seafood, deli and bakery.
The Jasper location will mark Schnucks’ seventh Indiana store joining six others in the Evansville area and will be open 7 a.m.-8 p.m. seven days a week.
“We’re always excited to grow and expand our business by bringing Schnucks’ fresh quality products to new customers in a new market,” said Todd Schnuck, chairman and CEO. “Our mission at Schnucks is to Nourish People’s Lives, and Jasper customers will soon find out that we do this by not only making sure to address the food needs of our customers but also by nurturing the communities that we serve.”
The store will employ approximately 30 teammates. Prospective teammates are encouraged to visit the Schnucks Careers page to apply.
