'Boutique' Ballwin Schnucks Has Roof, Entrance On Clarkson Road

Construction progress obvious at busy intersection.

A Schnucks grocery store under construction on a former residential lot at Kehrs Mill and Clarkson Road now has a roof, and an entrance off Clarkson Road in Ballwin.

Wedged onto a V-shaped despite protests by neighbors whose homes back up to the now-parking lot, Schnucks has made remarkable progress toward opening the store this summer.

The store fronts on Clarkson Road, but it appears the majority of customers would enter on Kehrs Mill, through the parking area.

Schnucks has described the new store as "boutique" due to its smaller size than others, and that it would likely tailor its product line to local consumer tastes.

The new Schnucks location would likely draw consumers from nearby Clarkson Valley, Chesterfield, Ballwin, and possibly Ellisville.

This Schnucks should NOT be there. It is ugly and obtrusive and ruins the beauty of the Clarkson Valley area. Why didn't they listen to the people that live in the area and just not build it???

When will the whining stop? This store isn’t in Clarkson Valley, Chesterfield or Ellisville. It’s in Ballwin. Residents of the other cities don’t get a vote on what goes up in Ballwin. Just like Ballwin residents who bordered the Town and Country Target development didn’t get a vote. And let’s try not to get all misty eyed over the weedy, overgrown embankment that was replaced by this store. Or the improved intersection that already had two corners, (one in Clarkson Valley) which have been non-residential for 15+ years.

I hear Clarkson Valley is looking to be annexed by Wildwood and Chesterfield.
