ST. LOUIS – Schnuck Markets is now offering party planning order-ahead services at 59 of its stores.

Orders can be placed via the Schnucks Rewards app and on the company’s website. Options include party platters, sandwiches, sides, soups, salads, appetizers, entrees and select bakery items.

“Customers at more than half our locations can now order what they want, when they want for their parties and family gatherings simply by using their smartphones, tablets and computers,” said Chace MacMullan, Schnucks’ senior director of digital experience. “To save customers time and hassle, orders are paid for in advance, and ready for pickup at the deli counter so there is no need for customers to wait in line at the checkout.”

To place an order from the app, customers set their “Home Store” to one of the locations listed below and then tap the “Shop” option. To order from the Schnucks website, customers should visit the Party Planning section and enter their zip code to find a location near them. Orders should be placed at least 72 hours in advance of the desired pickup time. 

As an added bonus, first-time party planning order ahead customers will earn an extra 250 Schnucks Rewards points. Customers can download the Schnucks Rewards app in the App Store or Google Play
