Schnuck Markets announced on Friday a detailed timeline relating to the closures of nine of the Shop ’n Save stores it agreed to buy last month.

Schnucks agreed to buy 19 St. Louis-area Shop ’n Save stores from Supervalu in mid-September. Each will close and open 2½ days later as Schnucks stores after switching out point-of-sale systems, adding new signage and restocking merchandise. The stores will be remodeled soon after re-opening.

Stores closing Sunday and reopening Wednesday at 9 a.m.: 7909 Highway N, Dardenne Prairie; 9070 St. Charles Rock Road, St. John; and 7057 Chippewa, Shrewsbury. Stores closing Tuesday and reopening Friday at 9 a.m.: 100 Jungermann Road, St. Peters; 2183 Charbonier Road, Florissant; and 45 Gravois Bluffs Plaza Drive, Fenton. Stores closing Thursday and reopening Oct. 14 at 9 a.m.: 60 Harvester Square, St. Charles; 10634 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Ann and 1253 Water Tower Plaza, Arnold.

Schnucks said the schedule for the 10 other stores not detailed above, as well as a standalone pharmacy in Union, would be announced soon.

During the closures, current pharmacy customers will be able to drop off and pick up prescriptions between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

The fate of the remaining 17 area Shop ’n Save locations not bought by Schnucks remains uncertain. Supervalu said the stores not acquired by Schnucks would remain open for now but would close by mid-November if a buyer didn’t emerge.
