48,000-Sq. Ft. Store Will Bring Fresh Quality Food Options to the Woodlawn Neighborhood
Mayor Rahm Emanuel today broke ground on the new Jewel-Osco on the northwest corner of 61st Street and Cottage Grove Avenue. The full-service grocery store and drive-through pharmacy store will bring high-quality fresh food options to the Woodlawn community.
“Today we are breaking ground on the next phase of the renaissance and resurgence happening across Woodlawn,” Mayor Emanuel said. “This new grocery store will bring fresh food options to a community that is witnessing an unprecedented level of investment, growth and progress.”
The 48,000-square-foot store will employ approximately 200 full-and part-time workers when it opens in early 2019. The full-service supermarket will offer fresh produce, a deli counter, ready-to-eat meals and a variety of service for customers. The store will be developed by a joint venture of Terraco and DL3, which will lease the facility to Jewel-Osco.
