THE BEST SCHNUCKS WEST OF THE RIVER
    Schnucks Harvester Square
    60 Harvester Square
    St. Charles, MO 63303
    Don't let the busted "H" in the Schnucks sign fool you, this is the golden Schnucks of St. Charles. Perhaps a hidden gem, this Schnucks is tucked into a corner of a badass strip mall: A Dollar General, GreatClips, thrift store and more will handle a weekend's worth of errands in one trip. This Schnucks is smaller than others on the list, but the phrase "tiny but mighty" comes to mind. Well-stocked and quiet, you can find what you're looking for with ease and don't have to worry about running into the college kids that frequent the First Capitol Schnucks. It does lack some of the perks the other stores possess, but a CVS pharmacy and full grocery will satisfy those who prefer a no-frills grocery experience.
