Open a Mariano's in South Shore on 71st

This petition had 3,172 supporters

Being a new resident of South Shore, the lack of an affordable, healthy grocery store is extremely troubling. The residents of this area deserve and need better. I reached out to Kroger, the parent company of Mariano's and they would like to see more interest from family and friends regarding opening a location in South Shore.

Aside from having a healthy, but affordable place to shop, having a large grocery store like Mariano's would help with unemployment in the area. Furthermore, it would help develop 71st street business corridor.

If you live in the area and would love a grocery store nearby, please sign. 

Thank you,


From Kroger:

"I appreciate your comments and suggestion to open a Mariano's store in the South Shore area. We look at real estate opportunities on an ongoing basis and are always interested in expanding. Please encourage family and friends to share their interested as well. I have shared your desire to have a Mariano's store in your area with our Real Estate Department."
