Dominicks

So I just read the city will be buying the dominicks mall? How will this effect the chances of getting a grocer back? Am I hearing this right? Any concise info would be great, since my pc is ill.

    Here's an article on the city considering eminent domain:http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/breaking/chi-dominicks-south-shore-city-20141007-story.html

    - The owner of the property is based in California and isn't as sensitive to the needs of the community that a local owner would be.

    - The owner has no incentive to quickly replace Dominick's or quickly invest the reported $6 million needed in improvements since the Dominick's lease runs through May of 2015. They're basically collecting 18 months of inflated on a closed store with no maintenance required.

    - To lease the space to another tenant would require improvements and rent concessions as it has been reported that what they're asking, and what Dominick's has been paying, is above fair market value.

    - When the news initially broke that Dominick's would continue to pay their rent through May 2015, I knew that the owner wouldn't have a sense of urgency in working to find a new grocer.

Mariano’s CEO tours South Shore

    I do hope that they are really and truly interested in the old Dominick's location and that Hairston really know how to throw a good pitch for the area.

Lakeside CBA

Did anyone else go to the meeting Tuesday, 8/19? It seemed a little disorganized and not enough community input. What do you think?

  • I never hear about these meeting until someone makes a comment in this forum. Where are the dates of the meeting posted?

  • Bob G. 8300 Burnham 65+ year resident of South Chicago

    I received an email from the Coalition for a Lakeside CBA . I think it's part of Alliance of the Southeast (www.asechicago.org/lakeside ). There was not a definite date announced but they mentioned either Sept 25 or 30 as possible dates for a "townhall meeting", location TBA. Subcommittees were supposed to meet in between. I will post the announcement here on EveryBlock if I get more info.

  • Thank you for your help

Hairston Gives Mariano’s CEO Tour Of Possible Store Sites In South Shore

Some have complained about Hairston's response to South Shore's Dominick's closing & the lack of interest received from grocers to move into the space.

Getting the CEO here to tour South Shore and 7 potential sites (he doesn't like the old Dominick's location) is remarkable. I do hope something comes of it.
