You could call it the Schnuck's shuffle.
The youngest of the Schnuck brothers is getting ready to take over the family business.
Fifty-five year old Todd Schnuck has been COO of Schnuck's Supermarkets since 2009. The grocery chain's current chief executive, 63 year old Scott Schnuck, says its time for new leadership.
Scott Schnuck will take over as chairman when his older brother, 65 year old Craig Schnuck retires in March, but says he'll stick around until fall to help his younger brother Todd transition into the role of president and CEO.
The company also announced Thursday that former Aldi and Walmart executive Anthony Hucker will assume the role of COO.
Schnucks supermarkets already have pharmacies, floral shops and cooking classes. Now the St. Louis chain is branching into healthcare.
Schnucks is opening its first Schnucks Infusion Solutions facility to treat acute and chronic conditions.
Infusion therapy is administered by injecting medicine through a needle or catheter. It treats conditions ranging from infectious diseases to cancer.
The new 65-hundred square foot healthcare facility is located on Page Service Rd. There, pharmacists will prepare infusions to be given to patients either at the center or at home.
Schnucks Director of Pharmacy Services Dave Chism, calls outpatient infusion therapy a "safe and cost-effective alternative for patients to receive treatment" in an alternate healthcare setting.
Chism says patients tend to recuperate better at home, and with the focus now on shorter hospital stays, he says there is a growing need for infusion providers.
