The new Schnucks Markets grocery store in Jasper, Indiana is open with Knoebel Construction serving as the general contractor. Branded “Schnucks Fresh,” the location debuts a new, smaller-format design for the Midwest grocery chain focused around their fresh departments, including produce, meat, seafood and bakery.
“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,” said Schnucks Markets Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck in a statement.
Kneobel constructed the 18,000-square-foot Schnucks Fresh location in a former Cash Saver building in Jasper’s Germantown Shopping Center. Knoebel previously completed projects in Missouri for Schnucks Markets in Dardenne Prairie and Sunset Hills and is currently renovating a location in Jefferson City.
“We were excited to work on this new concept for Schnucks and know that this format is going to be a fantastic success, especially in such a deserving community as Jasper, Indiana,” said Bryon Muir, Director of Business Development, at Knoebel Construction. “The people and the town of Jasper have been so welcoming of Schnucks and the Knoebel Construction team. We are very thankful we were given the opportunity to bring this innovative concept to fruition for both our client and their future customers!”
