Schnucks Will Close Bettendorf Store
The Schnucks grocery store in Bettendorf is going to close. Friday the company announced it will close permanently on August 16th, and that all of its 80 employees will be able to transfer to other Schnucks stores.
Those who don't transfer will receive severance packages.
Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck says the store has not been profitable. It opened at Duck Creek Plaza in Bettendorf in 2005.
Based in St. Louis, the company also has stores in Peoria and Rockford, plus DeKalb, Bloomington, Normal, Champaign, Urbana, and Springfield.
