Whole Foods will occupy former Dominick’s space on Green Bay Road

Whole Foods Market will move into the Green Bay Road property previously occupied by a Dominick’s grocery store, a company spokeswoman confirmed Monday. 

Whole Foods will open a store at the vacant property at 2748 Green Bay Rd. in 2015. The location has been vacant since Dec. 28, when both Evanston locations of Dominick’s closed their doors as the franchise left the Chicago area. Whole Foods also purchased six other Dominick’s in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs.

“We are incredibly excited about this opportunity to quickly and significantly expand our presence in the greater Chicago area,” Whole Foods Midwest regional president Michael Bashaw said in a news release. “We plan to remodel each store to reflect its community and look forward to offering fresh, natural and organic foods to a broader base of Chicago customers.”

The seven new Whole Foods locations will be closed in 2014 and reopen next year. More information will be announced Feb. 12, when the company reveals its first quarter earnings. The move will give Evanston a third Whole Foods store, with existing locations at 1640 Chicago Ave. and 1111 Chicago Ave.

In December, Safeway Inc., owner of the Dominick’s chain, closed all Chicago-area Dominick’s stores, drawing community concern for leaving vacant spaces on Green Bay Road and Dempster Street.
