Schnucks has been serving customers for more than 80 years, growing from a single, small confectionery to a leading regional supermarket chain. We still follow the same values we have since 1939: Friendliness, Service, Quality, Variety, Value, Integrity and Innovation. We started small, and we want to support small, diverse and local suppliers.
We launched a formal Supplier Diversity program in November 2020 in our efforts to better reflect the communities we serve, to promote opportunity and innovation, and to stimulate local economies.
