Their is new signage regarding the retail development at the intersection of Collingwood Dr. and Olive Blvd. across the street from Chevy’s. Office Max recently closed on this property. Tenants will include eateries, a grocery store and more that will be listed in the coming months.
Walmart’s Grocery Pickup option on their website is awesome and easy to use. After ordering you will get an email in a day or two when your groceries will be ready within an hour window. You will get another email when your order is ready to be picked up.
You will then go to the pickup area and park inline with one of the many orange signs that are numbered. An Associate will get with you asap and load the groceries in you trunk.
There is no touching or signing involved making it a safe option during the Covid-19 outbreak for customers and Associates.
Shopping at Schnucks Creve Coeur during COVID-19 between the hours of 6 AM and 7 AM for shoppers 60 years and older and for people with health ongoing conditions was a pleasant experience.
There was plenty of food with the exception for bread and toilet paper which gets restocked daily. The people were calm and actually talking a little bit more today with each other.
There was only one register open and two self-checkout Express Lines for 12 items or under. The Express Line was empty and the one checkout was backed up a bit with a wait time of around 12 minutes or so.
Thank you for all your hard work and sacrifice that has helped keep us all in Creve Coeur safe and alive. Like heroes ruining towards the danger, your bravery has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated.
From Creve Coeur to all the workers at Schnucks

Brennan’s Restaurant is moving around the corner in the same building from the Maryland side to Euclid side where Cassie’s once resided in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis.
The current Brennan location at 4659 Maryland Ave. will stay open until renovations are complete.
I had the pleasure of meeting Artist Phil Jarvis and Mr. Brennan during our visit. I couldn’t get my camera to work and asked the worst questions ever. But being that they were both gentlemen I managed to get some footage.
Beffa’s Bar & Restaurant is a lunch and dinner restaurant and family owned for more than a century. The family decided to reopen the restaurant and continue serving classic pub food from juicy burgers to appetizers at 2700 Olive Street in Midtown St. Louis.
