Schnucks' Plan Spurs More Debate


The announcement of two new grocery stores coming to Springfield was greeted as good news by many people… but one Springfield alderman is not so sure.

 

Ward 7’s Joe McMenamin is repeating his concerns that the new Schnuck’s stores will simply take business away from existing stores. He says the city should also be careful about using incentives to draw new businesses in to compete with already-established outlets.

 

So far, the city has talked about creating an east-side TIF district that could make it easier for Schnuck’s to pursue one of those two planned stores.
