ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KTVI/WEHT) – The Schnucks grocery chain says that all stores will be closed Sunday, April 12, in observance of the Easter holiday.

Management says stores won’t reopen until noon on Monday, April 13.

There are also several new shopping guidelines that the chain is asking their customers to follow.

In accordance with a recommendation from the worker’s union and CDC guidelines, Schnucks is asking shoppers to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth while at their stores.

Also, Schnucks is not currently allowing customers to use reusable bags.

There are no known cases of coronavirus spread through the use of the reusable bags — but, the stores are not allowing them in an abundance of caution.

“Our teammates have worked incredibly hard over these past few weeks, and in order to provide many of them with some additional time to rest and recharge, our stores will not reopen until noon on Monday, April 13,” a representative from Schnucks writes.

Schnucks says there is an increased demand for groceries and other supplies during the coronavirus pandemic, and has released several updates in a statement to the media.
