Townhall Meeting

Good morning Everyone! For all who are interested in receiving updated information about the vacant Dominick's at 71st & Jeffery,there will be a Townhall meeting today at St.Philip Neri beginning at 1:00 p.m.

  • Gwen summed it up correctly. Also,Val said that the owner of Give Me Some Sugah Bakery,located at 71st & Crandon,is asking the community to help support her business by patronizing as much as we can so she will not be forced to close. She also has a sit down cafe next door where she serves sandwiches,soups,breakfast and other items.

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.
