The Green Park Board of Aldermen approved a signage plan for Kloss Furniture March 21. Kloss will move into the former Schnucks at 5780 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

The location was formerly a Shop ‘n Save that was acquired by Schnucks in 2018. Schnucks closed the store in February 2021. 

The signage plan includes seven signs — the main storefront sign, two smaller ones to its right and left and four “box signs” featuring interchangeable canvas designs inside. The signs’ total area takes up 8.5 percent of the building’s walls compared to the allowed 5 percent in city code.

City Administrator James Mello has said in the past that many places in Green Park have more signs than city code permits, and the limit is in place to allow the board to review essentially all plans. 

“They don’t face Lindbergh, but that’s their primary traffic avenue, so having the additional signage and larger signage than is typically allowed gives them the advertisement to the main corridor,” Mello said. 

The plan stipulates that any temporary signage like the canvas signs will be maintained and kept in good condition.

The board unanimously approved the plan.
