Jewel-Osco Re-Grand Opens 2 Remodeled Stores In Edgewater

JO-LOGO_StackedwCircle_RGBTomorrow, Wednesday June 25th at 8am, Jewel-Osco has announced the grand re-opening of 14 remodeled stores which includes 5516 N Clark St and 5343 N Broadway in Edgewater. They have invited many of the local community leaders and business people and guests will enjoy live music and samplings.

It has been an interesting several months to say the least for Chicago-based Jewel-Osco. It was only a year ago that the the chain seemed to (somewhat) coexist peacefully in the Chicago area grocery game with Dominick’s.  However, everything got shook up when Dominick’s announced they were closing for good. That opened the doors for other grocery chains like Mariano’s, Whole Food and Joe Caputo & Sons to enter the market as they scrambled to purchase the shuttered locations.

Many communities finally got some options in their grocery shopping as the bland shopping environment got a nice jolt of energy. Unfortunately, Jewel-Osco needed to step up their game, so they hired new President, Shane Sampson who focused on both price and shopping experience. He made a very quick decision to remodel 14 stores and complete 5 newly acquired ones.
In a statement, Mr. Sampson said “With over 30,000 team members strong, Jewel-Osco has a deep roster of talented individuals that drive our company to be the number one grocery retailer in Chicagoland. We’re getting back to doing what’s right for our customers, our team, and the community. Our mission is to support the neighborhoods that we serve by giving them the prices they deserve, the goods and services they want, and the highest standard of service.”

The new stores have created 1,500 new jobs and are boasting many ideas that match what Mariano’s has offered for years. Depending on location, you will see things like an oil and honey bar, gourmet bulk nuts, candy, teas and spices, freshly made caramel corn and caramel apples. All stores will see an updated produce, bakery and meat/seafood departments.
