A West Loop grocery glut?

With the recent opening of a Mariano’s at 40 S Halsted St, residents of the near West Loop have ready walking access to four major grocers.

The choices include a Dominick’s at 1 N Halsted St, a WalMart Neighborhood Market at Presidential Towers and what’s probably the city’s nicest Jewel, at 370 N Desplaines St.

The Dominick’s has received a number of negative reviews at Yelp, while the Jewel and WalMart have typically garnered positive ones.

    Don’t forget the various ‘open to the public’ meat wholesalers as well, though those draw from a larger geographic area.

    Four is hardly a glut…

  • SheridanB,

    Mariano’s apparently agrees with you, based on their opening.
