CHICAGO — Local grocery store entrepreneur Bob Mariano has opened the second location of his newest venture: Dom’s Kitchen & Market.
Mariano was joined Tuesday by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for a ribbon cutting in the city’s Old Town neighborhood.
The event took place just a few hours after sources tell WGN that Lightfoot’s security detail was involved in a Northwest Side police shooting.
The grocery store is billed as “a next-generation omni-channel local food emporium providing Chicagoans a place to eat and shop,” according to a press release from the company.
The new location at 1233 North Wells Street officially opened Tuesday morning at 6 a.m. and includes 12,000 more items than its Lincoln Park location. The release states many of the new items are locally sourced from Chicago and the Midwest.
