Mariano’s Fresh Market has announced its plans to open a new grocery store in Chicago, at the intersection of 87th Street and the lake.
Mariano’s, the popular grocery store chain now has plans to build another store on Chicago’s South Side, this one in Bronzeville, reports WBBM Political Editor Craig Dellimore.
It was devastating news for customers when their Dominick’s store shut down in Ukrainian Village last year. But Tuesday night that store at 2021 West Chicago Avenue, begins a new life as Mariano’s.
The final day for stores in the closing chain is Saturday. CBS 2’s Mai Martinez visits one North Side location.
As the Mariano’s grocery store chain expands in Chicago, its parent company says it plans to hire 2,500 workers to staff its new stores.
Roundy’s, which owns the Mariano’s chain, says it will buy 11 of the Dominick’s stores for $36 million.
Mariano’s Fresh Market is hiring 450 people for full- and part-time jobs in a new store coming to the Lakeshore East development downtown.
The first Mariano’s Fresh Market within the Chicago city limits is open Tuesday, on the former site of the Riverview amusement park in the Roscoe Village neighborhood.
