The new Jewel-Osco will open its new contemporary and “green” store at 3630 N. Southport Avenue on Thursday, Oct. 21. The 62,000-square-foot building will now include a full-service pharmacy and expanded kosher selections, with a separate deli area and Israeli wines.
Creating a big, “green,” LEED-certified building appears to be the new trend in grocery stores. A new Dominick’s opened in Lincoln Square on Sept. 30, boasting the same features. Both stores are aiming to get silver LEED-certification.
