Dozens of Dominick’s stores closed Saturday afternoon and 6,000 employees will loose their jobs.

A spokesperson says workers will still be inside cleaning up, but no one is allowed in after twelve.

Jewel-Osco will convert four Dominick’s stores by mid-January.

Mariano’s purchased 11 of the locations, and Jewel Osco bought four of them. These stores will begin transitioning next month.

A buyer still hasn’t come forward to purchase the remaining stores.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has appointed a task force to deal with the closings, to prevent some neighborhoods from becoming food deserts.
