Safeway has announced when it expects to shutdown its unsold Dominick's stores. According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
"The 68 Dominick’s stores that remain unsold to other grocery chains will close “on or about” Dec. 28.
Dominick’s employees received notice this week in a letter.
“The closures are expected to be permanent,” the letter said.
Safeway, Dominick’s parent company, announced on Oct. 10 its plan to pull out of the Chicago market.
So far, only four of the 72 Dominick’s stores in the area have been purchased. New Albertsons, which owns Jewel, bought them."
