Shop ‘n Save Closes Collinsville Store

By on September 13, 2018

From St. Louis Post-Dispatch:  The Shop ‘n Save grocery store in Collinsville closed at the end of August, leaving 60 employees without a job.

Some of those employees, Shop ‘n Save executives said, were transferred to jobs with other nearby locations. Officials with the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 88, which represented a portion of the employees affected, declined to comment. Leaders of UFCW Local 881, which represents another portion, did not return requests for comment.

It’s the third Shop ‘n Save to close within the last 12 months, following closures of locations in south St. Louis and Maplewood. The south St. Louis store, in the Gravois Plaza at 3865 Gravois Avenue, will soon reopen as an Aldi. The Maplewood store has been turned into a Schnucks, which opened in late August.

Kirkwood-based Shop ‘n Save is owned by Minneapolis-based Supervalu, Inc., which eariler this year agreed to be acquired by United Natural Foods for $2.9 billion. Prior to that deal, Supervalu had sought to divest its retail operations, including the Shop ‘n Save brand.
