Dominick’s is a grocery store chain that is located mainly in the Chicago area. In 1918 Dominick DiMatteo opened his first store. He opened a second store almost fifteen years later in 1934. His first supermarket, which spanned about 14,000 square feet, was opened in 1950.
Within two decades he had 19 stores in the area. The store was then sold to Fisher Foods although Dominick’s family still operated it. In the 1980s, however, the family didn’t like how the stores were being managed under Fisher Foods and opted to buy the business back. By the 1990s Dominick’s had expanded to include the food and drug combo that was becoming popular.
They were among the first to have exposed ceiling sales areas, POS systems, one hour photo, video departments and bulk food. In 1998, Safeway acquired Dominick’s bringing it to be one of their many subsidiaries.
Because it is owned by Safeway you’ll see many of the same types of positions in all of Safeway’s stores. Like many of the other Safeway subsidiaries those looking for employment at Dominick’s can work in their pharmacy. Dominick’s was on the leading edge of combining pharmacies with groceries.
Because of that Dominick’s still hires the best pharmacists in the area. They are expected to be part of the community and know their patients name. Dominick’s uses a holistic approach so they have a wide variety of items to offer their customers. A pharmacist is only as good as their team so having highly skilled technicians working beside them will make things much easier. Pharmacy managers also make things run much smoother.
You can also find a place in the food side of these “food and drug” stores. With clerks needed in every area of the store you can choose from being in meats, deli, alcohol, frozen foods, floral as well as the many other areas.
