Loss of Dominick's stores means trouble

Success - Article sent! close

I am responding to the Daily Herald editorial entitled, "Loss of Dominick's affects more than just shopping."

The editorial board made a statement that many people can agree with. They had thought because Dominick's was closing, that everything would be affected -- "There's the worry of the small shop owners who rely on a draw like Dominick's to bring people into their strip centers -- and whose landlords rely on the income from Dominick's to keep up appearances, and help pay for improvements to the parking lot, etc. There are the employees who have decent-paying jobs and benefits. Many will join millions of Americans reshaping their economic lives to make ends meet."

This demonstrates how Dominick's workers are going to have to change their lives to pay the bills. Without a paycheck coming in for families, people will be in danger for debt.

Dominick's has been around for years, and has a very good rating for themselves. From being reliable and generous to their customers, the employees have created a very tight bond with their shoppers.

"For some communities, Dominick's is the only grocery store in town -- and now residents will have to leave town to buy food whether the bus goes there or not." Since some areas only have Dominick's as an option to shop from, people will now have to drive the extra miles to get food. Not only will locations to the local grocery store be farther away, but it also causes the community to buy different products.

Families and adults in villages usually have a certain brand of food that buy from. Due to Dominick's closing, families will have to change their food products to something different.
