So What Do You Think About The New Dominick's?
Readers say they like the wine selection and prices. We pretty much love the olive bar. What's your take?
Update: Some information about the opening and the store from Dominick's press release: "In honor of Veterans’ Day, a trumpeter from Loyola University played the national anthem for the crowd of neighbors, business and civic leaders who gathered for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony in front of the store. Continuing its legacy of giving through partnerships with non-profit organizations, Dominick’s made a contribution to Care For Real. The center supports the community by providing food, clothing and counseling services to those in need.
The new Dominick’s is nearly 55,000 square feet, over 15,000 feet larger than the old store. It is a ground-up replacement for the store built in 1978 on that site. The store has several environmentally friendly features, including energy saving refrigeration cases, native landscaping that requires less water, a cool roof that reduces the urban heat island effect, and other energy saving and environmentally friendly features."
