With $20 billion merger looming, Jewel is in for another change – Chicago Tribune

Good morning, Chicago.

Month delay in shipment Cook County property tax bills resolved: Bills will be posted online on Tuesday, mailed by December 1st and must be paid by December 30th.

Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas, who is in charge of sending out bills and collecting payments, told the Tribune that her team is testing this weekend to post bills on Tuesday “assuming there are no glitches” or on Wednesday.

“Everybody wants to know” what their bill will look like, Pappas said, especially commercial property owners who are nervous about the city of Chicago’s first reappraisal under Assessor Fritz Kaega.

Taxpayers will be able to download their bill to print and mail a payment, pay online at the Treasury website, at Chase Bank branches or at the Treasury office downtown.

In October, the nation’s largest traditional grocery company, Kroger, announced its plans to buy the second largest such company, Albertsons, for $20 billion. In Chicago, the news meant one thing: Mariano’s parent company, Kroger, wanted to buy da Jewels.

For years, Chicago was largely a two-grocery city: As recently as the late 1990s, Jewel and its No. 2 competitor at the time, Dominick’s, controlled two-thirds of the local grocery market.

But the product landscape in 2022 is much different. Dominick’s has been gone for nearly a decade, while Jewel and 21st-century rival Mariano’s have faced increased competition from big box retailers like Walmart, Costco and Amazon Fresh, as well as specialty grocers including Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, owned by Amazon.

Nick Ishe vape shops at his Kazzaz Smoke Shop in Chicago, Oct. 26, 2022. As the City Council considers an ordinance to impose a moratorium on tobacco licenses, vape shop owners like Ishe are concerned about the increase in regulations in their industry.

Kim McAuliffe was looking out the window of her favorite restaurant on the Far Northwest Side when she noticed an unfamiliar banner reading: “Chickens N Kicks.” The canvas, which hung above the storefront on Northwest Highway in Edison Park, was decorated with an illustration of a hookah instrument wrapped around a pair of red and white Nike trainers, with puffs of smoke in the background.

McAuliffe later spearheaded an online petition against the business that emerged to be closed to the public during a recent visit and whose owner could not be reached for comment. McAuliffe said she and her neighbors are sick of what they’re watching as an unimpeded encroachment on smoke shops in their close-knit community.

Governor J. With Pritzker winning a second term and Democrats retaining their supermajority in the General Assembly, Illinois lawmakers head into their final session of the year this week with an agenda that could include adjustments to key provisions of the controversial criminal justice law.

The law, known as the SAFE-T Act, drew intense heat during the just-concluded election, when Republicans slammed Pritzker and Democrats for being soft on crime for supporting a measure that would, among other things, eliminate cash bail starting on New Year’s Day.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey leaves after conceding on election night, Nov. 8, 2022, at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield.

The Illinois Republican Party is teetering on bordering on the ridiculous because of the shell he got Tuesday, when voters supported the Democrats’ blue wave and rejected the GOP’s further rightward movement that was accelerated by former President Donald Trump and his closed-minded ideology.

The nomination of the most conservative gubernatorial candidate in modern times, state Sen. Darren Bailey of Xenia, proved too much for Illinois general election voters. The theme of Bailey’s rural, regional and evangelical Christian campaign to challenge progressive Democratic Gov. J. B. Pritzker, was resoundingly rejected, especially in the suburbs, where voters rejected his opposition to abortion and gay rights, his support for gun rights and his labeling of Chicago as a “hellhole.” »

Trees along the 6400 block of South Stony Island Avenue on Nov. 10, 2022, in Jackson Park.

Residents of the South Side of Chicago overwhelmingly voted yes oppose the removal of thousands of trees due to construction around the Obama Presidential Center and the proposed golf course project.

The optional referendum was added to the ballot in seven precincts thanks to the efforts of Save Jackson Park, an advocacy group for the park and South Shore Cultural Center Park. This group is fighting for the city to stop removing trees for development and instead preserve the existing ones due to ongoing public health concerns related to tree canopies in the city.

Chicago Bears defensive end Justin Fields (1) leaves the field after a loss against the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field in Chicago on November 13, 2022.

10 thoughts after the Chicago Bears another banner day running for football — the league’s top rushing offense led the Detroit Lions to 258 yards on the ground — and still managed to lose 31-30 on Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field.

It was the first away win for the Lions in more than 23 months. Granted, that previous win came at the same venue against the Bears on Dec. 6, 2020.

Vin Butler fronts Arcade Fire at the United Center in Chicago on November 12, 2022.

Arcade Fire wasted no time in announcing their goal Saturday to a nearly full United Center, writes Tribune reporter Bob Hendron. “Gotta get the spirit out of me,” singer-guitarist Vin Butler sang repeatedly at the opening of Age of Anxiety I. As if responding in agreement, his wife — multi-instrumentalist/singer Régine Chasson — repeated the phrase to him.

The release of raw emotion and the search for authenticity defined the nearly two-hour show, which never moved beyond the aura of tension created by the allegations leveled against Butler this summer.
