With the Dominick’s’ closing, a new grocery store is brave enough to open its doors in Naperville soon.

At 1508 Aurora Avenue, Standard Market, a locally owned and operated grocery store, with its flagship store in Westmont, will open its doors.

With the new store comes about 225 new full-time and part-time jobs to area residents.

With the new store opening in mid-May, a big career fair will be held at the store’s corporate headquarters in Westmont over four days.

Hiring will occur from March 24 to March 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and as needed after that.

Standard Market sources a lot of its meat from local farmers, and they pride themselves on making their bread in-store.

"We learned a lot about what people wanted from Westmont," says Ken Tsang, Standard Market's director of technology and marketing in a recent Crain’s Chicago Business article.

Owners Brett Verkaik and Vince Priest say they are not even looking to become a big chain conglomerate or sell out to one. They want to be a specialty grocery with something extra.
