    Whole Foods is more than willing to welcome former Dominick's shoppers.

    Whole Foods is attempting to capitalize on all of the former Dominick's shoppers looking for a new place to buy groceries.

    Dominick's closed all of its stores in the Chicagoland area on Saturday.

    According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Whole Foods has mailed flyers offering Dominick's shoppers $15 off a $50 purchase, along with a sympathy note and a list of items that defy the store's expensive reputation.

    Shoppers have until Feb. 15 to use the coupons, or present their Dominick’s loyalty cards to get the savings.

    More than 70 Dominick's stores in the Chicago area will close on Dec. 27, leaving more than 6,000 workers without jobs and some neighborhoods without fresh food options.

    Jewel-Osco is also targeting former Dominick's shoppers by offering 10 percent off any food or merchandise purchase in exchange for a Dominick's loyalty card. That promotion runs out at midnight Saturday.

    Whole Foods is rumored to be taking over six shuttered Dominick's stores, the Sun-Times reports.
