CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - Schnucks announced it would give some employees performance and retention bonuses to show appreciation for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those who qualify could receive up to $600 in a one-time bonus paying out in January 2022. It will be based on hours worked.

It’s the fourth bonus Schnucks has issued to employees since spring 2020.

“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our teammates have remained committed to our customers and our communities,” Ted Schnuck, executive vice president of Supermarkets, said in a news release. “As we look ahead to the busy holiday season, we are acknowledging their contributions and are thankful for their continued efforts to help us nourish peoples’ lives.”

The company also announced new store hours.
