Schnucks celebrates first-ever Supermarket Employee Day


ST. LOUIS – Today, February 22 is the first-ever Supermarket Employee Day!

Schnucks is celebrating this day by giving each employee with a Schnucks Rewards account a 5,000 points, the equivalent of $10, for a break meal. They are also stocking their break rooms with snacks for employees to enjoy.

“Our teammates have stood strong and continued on the Schnucks’ mission to Nourish People’s
Lives during the pandemic. They are true heroes and we are thrilled to honor and celebrate
them,” Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck said. “When COVID-19 forced many to
shelter at home, we were able to stay open because of our teammates’ dedication, and
because of our teammates’ willingness and enthusiasm for trying new things, we have continued
to adapt and serve our customers and our communities every day.”

The Food Industry Association created the holiday to recognize supermarket employees at all levels.

Honor your local supermarket workers by using the hashtags #SupermarketEmployeeDay and #SupermarketHeroes.

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
