ST. LOUIS, MO – Construction is complete for the new $5 million Fresh Thyme store in St. Peters, MO, with Knoebel Construction serving as the general contractor. The 28,720-square-foot store opens today, March 14. The developer was InSite Real Estate and the architect was NORR.
The construction project consisted of precast concrete and custom interior finishes and was completed within a condensed schedule. The store features an extensive bulk food section with more than 400 bins of items and 25 percent of the store’s floor space is dedicated to fresh produce.
Knoebel Construction also constructed Fresh Thyme in South St. Louis, which opened last Fall. Fresh Thyme will employ approximately 95 people at the new St. Peters store.
