BENSENVILLE

The village of Bensenville recently welcomed a new Jewel-Osco Fresh Market near the corner of Grand Avenue and York Road.

Village officials and hundreds of residents and guests joined in celebrating the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the new flagship Jewel location, according to the village news release.

The store features such amenities asv a Starbucks, fresh-prepared sushi station, burrito bar, delicatessen cheese and wine, bakery, and one of the largest selections of craft beer that is all stored and sold cold.

“This is a great day for Bensenville and something we have been working on for a long time,” village President Frank Soto said in the release.“We did not want to lose a grocery store at this important corridor. Attracting a top-quality store with a history and reputation like Jewel-Osco illustrates all Bensenville has to offer.”

When media reported that Jewel had purchased leases on former Dominick’s stores in mid-2015, Soto requested to meet with Jewel to convince the company that Bensenville would be a perfect community to open a new store, the release stated. It notes that since then Jewel has been supporting the community.

At the grand opening, Jewel donated $2,500 to Fenton High School and the Bensenville/Wood Dale Food Pantry. It provided food at the 45th annual Toy Drive distribution, plus gift cards and goodie bags at the village’s monthly senior citizen luncheon, and works with the Bensenville/Wood Dale Food Pantry to ensure excess baked goods and other merchandise do not go to waste.
