The monthly Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act report -- called a WARN notice -- says the grocer could cut 5,633 jobs, including more than 3,200 in Cook County. Another 970 are in DuPage County, while about 700 are in Lake County. The remainder of the jobs are in Will, McHenry, Kendall and Kane counties.

The grocer's parent company, Safeway, announced in October that it'd leave the Chicago market by early next year.

Only four of the 72 Dominick's stores in the Chicago area have been sold so far.
