Dominick’s officially notified the state on Oct. 30 that it is closing all of its Chicago-area stores Dec. 28, affecting a total of 5,633 workers.
The notices were filed through the Illinois Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, better known as WARN, which requires businesses with 75 or more employees to give the state 60 days notice of pending plant closures or mass layoffs.
Meanwhile, Mariano\’s, the fast-growing upscale grocery chain led by former Dominick’s President Bob Mariano, confirmed during an earnings call Thursday that the company is exploring the acquisition of some Dominick’s locations.
“We are reviewing those stores and are in the process of determining which stores could fit our strategic plan for Chicago, based on our existing network of stores and our current expansion plans for Mariano’s,” said Mariano, CEO of Roundy’s, the chain’s Milwaukee-based parent.
