ST. LOUIS (WXOW) -- Suburban St. Louis-based grocery store chain Schnucks announced Sunday that 2.4 million of its customers' credit and debit cards may have been compromised over a three-month period.
The majority of Schnucks stores are in the St. Louis area, but the company also operates Logli grocery stores, including one in Janesville and multiple locations in Rockford, IL.
Schnucks also has stores in other parts of Illinois, as well as Iowa and Indiana.
The company says it first learned on March 15 of questionable activity of some cards and began an investigation on March 19. Schnucks also says it pinpointed the problem on March 28 and executed a plan to contain it within 36 hours, adding that the investigation uncovered that the breach began in December.
