Over 900 St. Louis area Shop ‘n Save employees get layoff notices

ST. LOUIS, MO — The owner of Shop 'n Save grocery stores has notified over 900 employees of layoffs. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the St. Louis Business Journal report that Minneapolis-based Supervalu has sent termination notices to workers at ten area stores and the Hazelwood-based distribution center.  There may be more layoffs to come.

This news comes after a major announcement about a grocery store sale in St. Louis. Monday Schnucks has agreed to buy 19 of Shop ‘n Save stores in Missouri and Illinois. A representative for United Food and Commercial Workers Local 655 tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Supervalu expects to close the remaining St. Louis area stores by November 19, 2018. That is unless a buyer for those stores emerges.

The process of closing the 19 stores Schnucks bought and rebranding them will begin on October 7 and is expected to be completed by late that month. Schnucks expect it will take about two and a half days for each store to be converted.

Schnucks announced that all union employees will retain their current rate of pay, hours and comparable job position. Managers of Shop ‘n Save will be interviewed for possible employment.
