Schnucks To Stop Selling Tobacco Products By January 2020

Grocery chain Schnucks announced Thursday it will stop selling tobacco products beginning Jan. 1. The company plans to sell existing inventory of cigarettes, chewing tobacco and similar products through the end of the year.

Spokesman Paul Simon said the announcement falls in line with the Maryland Heights-based company’s increasing focus on health and wellness.

“They are a profitable part of our business, but our company’s mission is to nourish people's lives, and tobacco products directly contradict that mission,” he said. “And that means we decided they simply didn’t belong in our stores.”

Simon declined to disclose how much revenue the private company makes from those products.
