Chicagoland Dominick’s stores close their doors for the last time

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.

    yeah…he appointed some West Side gangster ministers, someone from the union and a bunch of Latin paper pushers (all connected) to look for an answer. BTW Rahm, theSouth side and Pilsen are not the only areas affected by these closings..what the hell did you just pick THEM for your idiotic committee?

    The writer of this article should "loose" his job by making such a blatant typo in the opening sentence.
