And so is the Chase inside the Dominick's on Howard Street. The people living on the border of Chicago and Evanston will soon be living in a Starbucks food desert. Well it won't be that bad. There is the Starbucks 0.8 miles to the west at Howard and Western. Hardly walking distance. Then you have another location one mile or two "L" stops to the north on Main in Evanston. Finally to the south there is one near the Loyola "L" stop 1.2 miles away.
No one has picked up this Dominick's location yet. NBC reports that Mariano's is not likely to buy any more Dominick's. The buzz on the 'net recently has been that maybe a Food 4 Less will open here. Before that it was thought that maybe Devon Market or Morse Fresh Market would take over. The clock is ticking and in less than a month residents in the area will either have to rely on Paulina Certified or Rogers Park Fruit Market (Google Maps photo shows a narc car pat down in progress in front of Paulina Certified).
If you look carefully in the photo above you can see Metra zooming by. Maybe one day it will stop at Howard Street. That would really be a boon to the area in terms of residential and commercial development.
