CHICAGO (CBS) — Four Dominick’s stores will be closed for three days next month and re-open under the Jewel name on Jan. 16
Jewel bought the stores in October.
Two of the stores are in Chicago: 1340 S. Canal St. and 2550 N. Clybourn Ave.
The two others in the suburbs: 4200 S. Bell Rd. in Homer Glen and 1340 Patriot Blvd. in Glenview.
Safeway Inc. announced earlier this year it was shutting down the Chicago-area Dominick’s chain because it had lost money.
The move was seen as a major blow because of the 6,000 workers who would become jobless, but also because Dominick’s had a long history in Chicago.
Eleven Dominick’s stores will be converted to Mariano’s stores after Roundy’s Inc. bought the sites. Jewel agreed to buy four more.
That leaves nearly 60 Dominick’s stores that closed last Saturday with no word on what may happen to them.
