The countdown is on for Oswego's Dominick’s store on Route 34.
All unsold stores will close “on or about” Dec. 28, employees were told in a memo published byCrain’s Chicago Business.
“The closures are expected to be permanent,” according to the memo, which says the closing date will also be Dominick’s employees’ last day on the job.
Safeway, the chain’s parent company, announced earlier this month plans to close all 72 stores in the Chicago market.
Four of those stores have been purchased by New Albertsons, which owns the Jewel-Osco chain, the Chicago Tribune reported. The other 68 stores remain unsold, according to Crain’s.
The Village of Oswego is already looking for a new tenant for the building.
