"Prior to our store, cartolators could not accommodate a bottom cart shelf for large packages," said Dierbergs President Greg Dierberg. "That's a huge inconvenience for customers.
Greg Dierberg is very proud of the green initiatives.
"Our intent was to meet and then exceed customer expectations of what makes a store a Dierbergs store," said Greg Dierberg.
Dierbergs Construction Underway in Osage Beach – Septagon Construction, 10 May 2012 [cached]
"This project is good for Dierbergs, good for Osage Beach and good for the entire lake community," commented Greg Dierberg, president and CEO of Dierbergs Markets.
The store, which will anchor a multi-store development named Dierbergs Lakeview Pointe Shopping Center, is scheduled to open in the spring of 2013 - one year from now.
A fourth-generation Dierberg in the grocery business, Dierberg praised the relationship between his company and the city of Osage Beach and Camden County. Among others, he thanked Mayor Penny Lyons, Camden County Presiding Commissioner Kris Franken, City Administrator Nancy Viselli and City Attorney Ed Rucker.
"We're doing this today because we want to get the word out that construction is underway," Dierberg said.

"Our intent was to exceed customer expectations of what makes a store a Dierbergs store," says Greg Dierberg, president of Dierbergs Markets Inc.
"Our stores have a reputation for being light, bright and roomy," Dierberg says. "We elevated that concept with our Produce Market Hall, with high ceilings and plenty of light from skylights and banks of windows around the store."
"Our goal was to create a store that reinvigorates the mundane task of shopping and creates an opportunity for a culinary experience." - Greg Dierberg
Drawings by local artists decorate the outer walls and interior columns, and include references to local products, the company's local roots and its history in the community. "All these are prevalent themes in our marketing, and we've incorporated those signature messages throughout the store," Dierberg notes.
One of the market's most distinctive aspects is actually below the sales floor. "The new store has the distinction of being St. Louis County's only supermarket with covered parking, with space for 175 cars," Dierberg says.
"It really comes down to playing to our strengths," Dierberg says. "As an organization, we're very confident in them: culinary education; bright, clean and well-managed stores; exceptional variety; strong perishable departments; exceptional beer and wine selections; and high customer-service levels."
The Des Peres store was designed to showcase these and other key attributes "in unprecedented fashion," he says.
Finding a location that made sense for us and our customers was no easy task, as suitable property along this highly commercial stretch of Manchester Road is scarce," Dierberg says.
While the location was great, the footprint of the property was considerably less than required for Dierbergs' typical 70,000-square-foot-plus store. "We weren't going to shortchange this community on the Dierbergs experience, so we added levels," Dierberg explains.
The Des Peres store is the first in the St. Louis metropolitan area to have a rainwater harvesting tank, "a modern moniker for what my dad calls a cistern," Dierberg says. The tank holds 45,000 gallons of rainwater collected from the roof and used to irrigate grass and landscaping elements on the property, a natural purification method. Further, the Des Peres store builds upon energy management initiatives launched at other stores, including enclosed beer and dairy cases, and energy-efficient, motion-controlled LED lighting.
Shouting Freshness The new store has inspired opportunities to build deeper promotional partnerships with key suppliers. "For example, through our wine broker for Mondavi Wines, we developed an extraordinary multimedia program with Food Network chef Tyler Florence, who introduced his own wine label," Dierberg says.
"I think that only hints at the promotional potential of this store," Dierberg says.
Dierbergs' "slow and steady" growth strategy is accomplished organically rather than through acquisitions. As such, the features of the Market at Des Peres have set new standards storewide, particularly for foodservice, which Dierberg says "will be particularly important as we expand outside the immediate St. Louis metro area," including a store opening next spring in the Missouri vacation community of Lake of the Ozarks.

"We just want to be an integral part of the community," said company president, Greg Dierberg when asked about his hopes for the new store. "We're hoping to make this an event center."
On a personal note, Dierberg said his favorite thing about the store is that he can't find one favorite thing and he hopes customers feel the same way.

"Prior to our store, cartolators could not accommodate a bottom cart shelf for large packages," said Dierbergs President Greg Dierberg. "That's a huge inconvenience for customers. We're now the first supermarket in the U.S. that has a bottom shelf cart that can be used on a conveyor." The garage also allowed Dierbergs to dedicate about 23 percent of its acreage to landscaped green space, including a green streetscape running the length of the store along Manchester Road. Further, the new supermarket is the first store in the metro area to have a rainwater harvesting tank. The cistern holds 45,000 gallons of rainwater collected from the roof that will be used to irrigate grass and landscaping. "When we opened our Arnold store in 2008, we introduced a variety of energy-management programs, like enclosed beer and dairy cases, and energy efficient, motion-controlled LED lighting, all of which can be found in our Des Peres location," Dierberg said. "We build on our sustainability efforts with every new store." The surface lot entrance of the new store opens into the Farmer's Market Hall that emphasizes fresh local and organic produce. Other features: a bigger, better deli with new made-fresh offerings; an expanded Whole Life department with natural, organic and gluten-free products; a fresh bakery with a European pastry chef; full-service meat and seafood departments with expanded product offerings; unmatched grocery variety; and a pharmacy and florist. "Our intent was to meet and then exceed customer expectations of what makes a store a Dierbergs store," Dierberg said.
