Looks like the inventory of vacant big box stores is piling up in Naperville. Long vacant former Menard's (Jefferson & Ogden) Vacant Office Depot (Rt. 59) Soon to be vacant Walmart (moving) Soon to be vacant three Dominick's locations! Vacant Kmart (April 2013) Rumored... Big Lots closing Iroquois & Ogden location. Jewel closing Ogden & Aurora location One of the two OfficeMax locations either Fox Valley or Cress Creek Commons Under the gun... Many businesses on Rt. 50 may not recover from the two year construction project now underway.

The Safeway California prices never were popular here. And the need to "logon" and load your card with coupons was the last straw. The chance of selling the Dominicks name and remaining stores to a local business focused owner is still viable.
