Farewell to Dominick's in Chicago

Saying farewell to Dominick's (a Safeway Inc. subsidiary) in Chicago. What is mind-boggling is that neither website talks about the store closings.  We will pretend it is not happening.
Dominick’s owner, California-based Safeway Inc., announced Oct. 10 that it would exit the Chicago-area market by Saturday, saying the Dominick’s operations were the lowest-performing of Safeway’s business divisions and a drag on the company’s finances. The 72 area Dominick’s stores employed 6,600 people.  - Source:  Chicago Sun-Times
Safeway has kissed the Chicago market good-bye on grocery sales.
