Angela and Gerald Taylor might just be the most devoted Schnucks customers in the company's more than seven decades in business.

Early in their relationship, Gerald took Angela on a date to a Schnucks grocery store. Since then, they've had regular Friday date nights there. They've had birthday parties at the store. And this month, the couple had their wedding ceremony inside the Des Peres Schnucks. With Schnucks catering, of course.

"It's just a special place," Angela Taylor, 50, tells Daily RFT, adding of her wedding, "It was wonderful. We wouldn't change anything about it, absolutely nothing."

Gerald, an ophthalmic technician, and Angie, a patient-service representative at Washington University, met five years ago in a spin class, she says. They both grew up in St. Louis city, and they both turned 50 at the end of last year.

Ever since they began dating, Schnucks has meant a lot to them, she says.

"We started going there when it first opened," she says of the Des Peres grocery store on Manchester Road, which opened in that location by West County Center in 2009. "When we first went, Gerald said, 'I'm going to take you out to dinner,'...and I'm like, 'We're not going to have dinner at a grocery store!'"

But they did.

"And we've been going there ever since," she says.

They've both organized birthday parties for each other at that location, she notes.

And somedays, she says, "It's breakfast, lunch and dinner at Schnucks."

"You know how you have that one restaurant you really like? That's Schnucks."

Very unusual and different at the same time. I bet no one else can say what they did in their comments.

Are companies paying people to get married in their stores now? This is weird timing, considering Schnucks' need for good press, and the recent trend of fast food marriages.

People also like to shoot up heroine and smoke crack in the schnucks bathrooms. So, it's also like they're honeymooning in Jamaica

Hope they checked their bank statement when they bought the bouquet.
