Jewel-Osco is set to open a new supermarket this fall in the Marshfield Plaza on the South Side.
Jewel’s 62,000-square-foot store would join retailers such as Target Corp. and Staples Inc. in the shopping center, which is located at 119th street and Marshfield Avenue, according to Los Angeles-based Primestor Development.
The shopping center is Primestor’s first development in the Chicago area. It is being built on a site that once housed a 600,000-square-foot Libby Food canning plant. It’s part of an ongoing redevelopment of the retail business in the neighborhood.
“From out extensive work in underserved markets in Los Angeles, we know that supermarkets are critical to any redeveloping area,” said Arturo Sneider, a partner at Primestor. “Jewel-Osco, which is so much a part of the fabric of Chicago, will create, at the very least, a weekly draw for the rest of our extraordinary lineup.”
