The Chicago Sun-Times reports Alderman Leslie Hairston and Roundy's CEO Bob Mariano toured the vacant store, which was rejected as a Mariano's grocery site. However, Hairston said Monday other sites are being considered.

Hairston has been vocal in her effort to bring a grocery to South Shore. She has criticized Mayor Rahm Emanuel for not working hard enough to bring a grocery to South Shore.

Hairston recently told the Chicago City Council she was tired of focusing on trivia while South Shore residents "have to spend bus fare to get to the nearest grocer."
