Today Mariano’s Fresh Market opens its first store within the Chicago city limits. To celebrate, the Milwaukee-based company held a Grand Opening celebration Monday night with a ribbon cutting and a $5,000 donation to the Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club.
Like other new Mariano’s stores in Arlington Heights and Vernon Hills, the new grocery focuses on high-end customer service, a variety of prepared foods, handmade pizza prepared in a wood-burning oven, fresh seafood and a wide produce selection. Over 400 people are employed by the store.
Mariano’s Fresh Market is located at 3500 N. Western Ave. The store is open seven days a week from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
