Dierbergs Market

Des Peres, MO

Energizing the Future of Supermarkets

This first-of-its-kind grocery store is the flagship of Dierbergs supermarkets with an electrical infrastructure more commonly found in data centers. Redefining the shopping experience, the 74,000-square-foot store features an international cooking school, remote pharmacy, social gathering spots with entertainment and an underground parking garage.

“The successful on-time completion of the Dierbergs Market at Des Peres, the most complex supermarket ever built in this trade area, testifies to PayneCrest’s skills as an electrical contractor.” — Mark Martin, Director of Store Development & Store Construction, Dierbergs Markets, Inc.
