What do you think about the new store's location?
The new Schnucks that opened yesterday at the corner of Kehrs Mill and Clarkson Road had Patch readers buzzing this weekend with some happy to see it finally open and others promising to boycott. The controversial nature of the store, which technically resides within the city of Ballwin although it borders Chesterfield, dates back to when it was first announced several years ago. At that time, the lot had been zoned for residential use, and although the Ballwin planning commission recommended against changing the zoning, the city council voted to approve it. This prompted a lawsuit, which the city and Schnucks eventually won. Neighbors argued that the development would lower property values and cause traffic issues. Schnucks has said …

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. 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.

The Schnucks at Kehrs Mill and Clarkson Roads is moving quickly toward an opening sometime this summer. Look at the photos included here. The relatively mild winter so far allowed for a good deal of progress on footings, foundations, grading and adjacent roadwork. Tuesday, on the second day in a row of 80-degree weather, road workers were tackling the medians at the traffic lights in the intersection.

The intersection includes Marquette High School, a PNC Bank and residential housing—some single family, others appear to be attached housing in a semi-gated community. Ever caught up in the traffic jam on Clarkson Road when Marquette classes let out for the day? Let us …
