Tony's Finer Foods Filling Empty Strack Location
The Itasca-based food store chain is expected to be in its new Route 59 store by year's end.
The Itasca-based grocery store chain, with eight stores mostly in the Chicago area, plans to open a full-service supermarket at the 2300 Route 59 Joliet location, according to a story in the Joliet Herald News.
Tony’s can compete in the area, Director of Human Resources Jim Marnos told the paper, because each store is tailored to the area in which it's located and features foods produced by local vendors.
“The fresh produce is delivered daily," Marnos said in the article. "The owner still goes out to the market every week and hand-selects produce to bring into the stores.”
