“Mariano’s continues to demonstrate its commitment to communities across the City of Chicago,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “By creating 400 new jobs at the Edgewater store location, Mariano’s will provide an important economic engine for the neighborhood while ensuring residents have access to fresh, healthy food options.”Edgewater is the fifth Mariano’s store to open of the 11 former Dominick’s locations acquired by Roundy’s in December 2013, and the eighth in the City of Chicago. “Mariano's is a world-class grocery company with deep Chicago roots,” said Alderman Harry Osterman. “On behalf of the residents of our community, I want to welcome them to Edgewater and wish them many years of success serving our diverse community." With the support and leadership of Chicago’s public officials, Mariano’s has grown across diverse neighborhoods, such as Greektown and the Ukrainian Village. Mariano’s Edgewater is another example of this collaboration. “The support from Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Alderman Osterman and others in the City of Chicago helped make this store a reality,” said Mariano. “Mariano’s is proud to do business here, and we’re looking forward to growing our team even more in the years ahead.”
