Schnucks encouraging customers to wear face masks and reusable bags no longer allowed

Schnucks stores will also no longer allow shoppers to bring in their own reusable bags

ST. LOUIS — Schnucks grocery stores in the St. Louis area are making some changes to further protect customers from the spread of COVID-19.

Schnucks announced that customers would no longer be able to bring reusable bags into the store starting on Thursday, April 9. Schnucks said that while there are no known cases of the virus being spread through the use of reusable bags, stores are taking this extra step as a precautionary measure.

Schnucks also is encouraging customers to wear a face covering for their mouth and nose when shopping in stores. This follows the recent CDC face covering recommendation, if you must venture out to any public place.
