18:30 EDT Thursday, October 10, 2013

PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Safeway Inc. (NYSE: SWY) announced today, as part of its plan to exit the Chicago market, it has sold four of its Dominick's stores in the greater Chicago area to New Albertsons, Inc., which operates Jewel-Osco grocery stores.  The four stores are:

  • 1340 S. Canal Street, Chicago, IL

During a short transition period, the stores will continue to operate under the Dominick's banner until Jewel-Osco can complete their conversion to Jewel-Osco stores.  Dominick's will be working with Jewel-Osco and the unions to ease the transition for store employees, and to facilitate continued employment for as many of them as possible.

Safeway has decided to exit the Chicago market and focus its efforts in other operating areas where its business is stronger.
