Jewel-Osco to Relocate Headquarters
Jewel-Osco will relocate its headquarters to Itasca, Ill., from Melrose Park, Ill., this summer and will include in its newest Chicago store a chef’s station and a wine steward, the company’s president said Monday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
The retailer will relocate 400 employees, but will keep its distribution center, with 1,500 employees, in Melrose Park. The company will lease its new four-story, 97,000-sq.-ft. headquarters, and will share the building with other tenants.
Jewel-Osco, under its parent company Supervalu’s three-year initiative, will remodel 30 stores in the region this year, the report said.
