Dominick's Ads Eggceptional

"Whether they're shopping for Swiss cheese on sale or organic kale, not enough Chicago-area consumers are doing it at Dominick's," the Tribune reported last week.

"Safeway Inc. said Thursday it is giving up on its struggling Dominick's supermarket chain and plans to exit the market as soon as the end of the year.

"What happens next for the 72 Dominick's locations is still unclear. Safeway said it's trying to sell as many of the stores as quickly as it can, adding that it's likely to fetch multiple buyers as opposed to a single grocer that would take over every location.

"Dominick's, which Safeway bought for $1.2 billion in 1998, has roots in Chicago that go back to the 1920s, and many local adults were raised on trips to Dominick's or its bigger archrival, Jewel."
