    Dominick's parent company, Safeway, announced in October its decision to pull its 72 stores out of the Chicago market because of poor sales, and Mariano's purchased 11 of the stores.

    By the end of this year, Mariano's will have 29 stores in the Chicago area -- 10 in the city and 19 in the suburbs.

    Owner Bob Mariano recently announced the chain plans to build a new store at 39th Street and King Drive on Chicago's South Side. Construction is expected to begin in 2015.

    Mariano told Crain's Chicago Business it projects the Chicago-area market can support between 45 and 50 locations.
