The article asserts that Jewel-Osco division, Albertsons' far-flung national supermarket network in Chicago, Illinois, will become even more successful, once the Albertson's/Supervalu transaction is completed in 2006. As a top-ranked grocer, Jewel-Osco owns a sizable part of the Chicago market. It is trailed by Safeway-owned Dominick's, which has faced four years of turmoil. Amid the slow but steady decline of Dominick's, Jewel has been able to pick up incremental market share, and is poised to gain more.
