Who’s going to win the grocery store wars in Chicago? Dominicks is out. Jewel stays…but the growing trend of premium foods, organic foods and better produce begins!
Most of these stores are going to keep advertising in the NEWSPAPER….
While the rest will waste way too much money on Chicago Media….even though their stores are in the suburbs.
Whoever wants to WIN the Grocery Store Wars should get on the air now on The Voice of DuPage County, AM 1530 WCKG.
I’ve been having lunch at Mariano’s nearly 3 times a week at their new Wheaton store. It’s right down the street from WCKG.
Who will win the battle in the burbs? What about Standard Market?
Let the grocery store wars begin!

Milwaukee-based Roundy’s, owner of Mariano’s grocery stores, said Monday it is buying 11 Dominick’s stores in the Chicago area.
The deal is worth $36 million. The stores are expected to be converted into Mariano’s within a month or two after the deal closes, expected in mid-December.
Employees at the stores being converted will need to reapply for jobs when the stores reopen as Mariano’s. A spokesman said the company will be holding a job fair for new hires and that Dominick’s employees can apply online or in-person for positions. Existing employees will not be given preference over other applicants, the spokesman added.
