Dominick's in Western Springs will remain open through Dec. 28, store manager Tom Odette said, but product availability will gradually decrease between now and then as the store reduces its inventory before closing its doors.

"We have already begun the reduction process," Odette said Monday afternoon.

The grocery store located in the Garden Market Shopping Center was among those recently purchased by Roundy's and slated to become a Mariano's.

Gradually? Full store to 90% empty shelves in a matter of days isn't gradual.

There's nothing left on the shelves. Don't waste your time going to Dominick's.

All that is left is produce, meat and some baked goods. The vampires had a field day with the 50%-off sale.

Yes, I had a field day buying cat and dog food and dropping it off at a local animal shelter. Money well spent
