There wasn't a parking space to be found Wednesday morning in the parking lot of the former Fricks Market at 401 Central Ave. in Union.
Hundreds were on hand to welcome Schnucks to town.
Officials from the city of Union, and Union Area Chamber of Commerce joined Schnucks executives for a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Ted Schnuck, executive vice president for supermarkets at his family's company, said Union's store is Schnucks' 113th throughout the Midwest. The 114th store will be the former Fricks in Sullivan, which has its grand opening at 9 a.m. Thursday.
"We're very excited to welcome the Union community, our customers and our new teammates," Schnuck said.
The store has 44 employees, all of whom came from Fricks, Schnuck said. Fricks store manager Pam Janssen remains in the position with Schnucks.
