Caputo’s: Joe Caputo & Sons Fruit Market Taking Over Arlington Heights Former Dominick’s Space on Palatine Rd

The former corporate-owned Dominick’s store in Arlington Heights will soon have a new family-owned independent grocery store. Joe Caputo & Sons Fruit Market IGA announced Saturday, January 25, 2014 that the grocer is taking over four former Dominick’s locations:

Arlington Heights
325 East Palatine Road
Anticipated opening Late March/Early April

Elk Grove Village
980 Elk Grove Town Center
To open shortly after Arlington Heights and Northbrook

Des Plaines
1555 Lee Street (moving from 959 E Oakton Street)
Late 2014

Northbrook
4125 Dundee Road
Anticipated opening Late March/Early April

Rumors were flying that Joe Caputo & Sons were interested in the Arlington Heights Dominick’s store before the Dominick’s store closed in December 2013. The Arlington Heights store is about 50,000 square feet, which is about the same size as the Palatine Caputo’s store. The Caputo family is active with sponsorships at St. Viator High School.

Caputo’s has the existing store in Des Plaines and a store in Algonquin, and the store as close as Palatine, but in recent years the drive west on Rand Road can be a slow trip. Joe Caputo & Sons opened the business in 1989 in Des Plaines.

Safeway, owners of Dominick’s, announced in October that the company was exiting the Chicago market and that all Dominick’s stores would close.

Three major grocery chains have bought or leased some of the 72 former Dominick’s locations.
