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.
