retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Schnuck Markets has announced the naming of Dave Peacock, a former president of Anheuser Busch, as its new president/COO. Even beyond his leadership role at Anheuser Busch, Peacock has a prominent public posture in the St. Louis community - he has led efforts to keep the St. Louis Rams NFL team in the city (which failed when the team loved back to Los Angeles) and bring major league soccer to the city (which failed when voters rejected $60 million in public financing for a new soccer stadium).
