Schnucks kicks off 2020 focused on health

Schnuck Markets Inc. is continuing its increased focus on health and wellness in 2020 as it announces expansions to its gym partnership and healthy kids’ field trip programs, and invites customers to join the company in a community-wide step challenge. Schnucks’ actions come on the heels of its recent decision to stop selling tobacco products.schnuck

“We know that lots of people start the New Year with a new resolve to make healthier choices, so Schnucks is working to help our customers jump-start healthy habits for 2020 and beyond,” said Kara Behlke, Schnucks’ director of health and wellness. “Our customers often tell us that health and wellness is important to them and that alone means it’s important to Schnucks.”

The company’s efforts include launching its first ever community-wide step challenge, open to those in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Wisconsin — the five states in which the company operates. Participants who log 50,000 steps or more now through Feb. 29 will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win 50,000 Schnucks Rewards points — the equivalent of $100.

Schnucks’ other health and wellness offerings include its Eat Good to Feel Great program, which includes:

  • Schnucks partnering with health-focused brands to offer in-store signage and displays that make it easy for customers to find healthier options.
  • The January edition of the company’s Simply Schnucks magazine is filled with more than 50 recipes to help customers build healthy meal plans.
  • Resources at Schnucks.com where customers can check out healthy recipes and tips, details about Schnucks-sponsored fitness classes, and information about signing up for store tours that are focused on healthy options.
  • “Try before you buy” company-wide healthy product demo events each Saturday throughout January.
  • Sponsoring the NHL All-Star 5K in downtown St. Louis on Jan. 25.

“Schnucks is going all in on health and wellness because we believe that when we work together with our customers, we can create healthier generations,” said Behlke.
