“We are excited to bring our passion for fresh food and world-class customer service to the Edgewater neighborhood,” said Bob Mariano, chairman and CEO of Roundy’s. “Mariano’s Edgewater will be a true experience for shoppers.

“Mariano’s continues to demonstrate its commitment to communities across the City of Chicago,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “By creating 400 new jobs at the Edgewater store location, Mariano’s will provide an important economic engine for the neighborhood while ensuring residents have access to fresh, healthy food options.”
