    Steve Eggelston


    Steve has been working in grocery stores for 36 years, 26 of those at Midtowne Market as Meat Manager. Today, as Midtown Market’s Store Manager, Steve loves to jump in and help out wherever needed!

    With his background as a butcher, it is no surprise that Steve is a big meat guy. His favorite meat to throw on the BBQ grill is a bacon wrapped pork tenderloin filet, which he introduced at Midtowne back in 1996!

    When he isn’t around the store, Steve is likely playing one of the 15 guitars in his collection.

    Julie Dampier


    Julie grew up in a grocery store. Her father, Roy Kohrs, owned the original Midtowne IGA in St. Charles. Julie has watched customers come in as kids, work at the store as teens, and return as parents and grandparents.

    Julie believes Midtowne is the perfect size store. Big enough to offer great selection, but small enough to personalize your order.

    Her favorite item is the spicy chicken tenders from the deli. When not at work, Julie loves cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals. She remains a lifelong Whitey Herzog fan.
