STATELINE (WIFR) -- Today marks the end of an era for many local shoppers. Schnucks is removing the Hilander and Logli’s signs at stores across the Stateline.
Tomorrow, Schnucks signs will go up in their place. The whole project is supposed to take a couple of weeks. Schnucks bought the Hilander chain from Kroger in 2011. We’re told they waited to change the names because they wanted customers to become more familiar with their brand.
ROCKFORD (WIFR) - Schnucks will launch the renaming of its stores around the Stateline by renaming the Logli Rockton location and Hilander Cherry Valley location with Schnucks.
"Unifying our stores under one banner, our family name, is an acknowledgement to our teammates and customers of our commitment to the Rockford and Janesville communities," said Scott Schnuck, Schnucks chairman and CEO, in a press release.
The Rockford and Janesville areas are the only ones where Schnucks-owned stores are run under different names.
All 11 locations in the area will be changed to the Schnucks name within the next two weeks.
