2/17/214: Bob Mariano discusses new grocery stores.
Mariano's recently took over several former Dominick's locations in Chicago, and the chain is hiring.
Next up: the new location in Bridgeport. The store hosts a job fair Saturday to help fill 350 new positions.
Mariano's partnered with the Instituto del Progreso Latino to host the 10 a.m.-3 p.m. fair. The store is hiring people of all experience levels, from entry-level jobs to management positions.
The former Dominick's store, located at 3145 S. Ashland Ave., was acquired by Roundy's, Inc. in December after Dominick's announced it was leaving the Chicago market.
The Bridgeport location is one of 11 former Dominick's stores being converted into Mariano's.
Mariano's says it will have created 10,000 jobs in four years.
The job fair will be held at the Instituto del Progreso Latino at 2520 S. Western Ave.
