Independent grocery store owners reportedly are showing interest in moving into Evanston’s two shuttered Dominick’s supermarkets — but no agreements have been completed yet.

That was the word Wednesday at a meeting of the grocery store working group formed by Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl.

    The sooner the better.  I went to shop at the Jewel on Chicago Ave. early this afternoon.  I tried to park in the lot and could not find a space. I went to Whole Foods to buy a couple of things and then came back and still could not find a space. Normally I would just park at whatever store I could find a space and walk across the street, but the wind and snow were blowing hard. I gave up and went to Trader Joes' and bought what I could. There were  still items on my list that were only available at Jewel.  The other options are going to the humungous Jewel stores on Howard St. or Green Bay for a full-service grocery store or my preference, the smaller one at Plaza Del Lago. I'd rather shop in Evanston at a FULL SERVICE store that is not humungous and that has plenty of convenient parking and pay my sales taxes here.
