MILWAUKEE — Roundy’s Inc. said Monday it is opening its latest Mariano’s store in Shorewood, Ill. on Tuesday.

This is the 10th Mariano’s to open from the 11 former Dominick’s locations acquired by the Milwaukee-based grocer late last year. The Tuesday opening of the Shorewood store increases the number of Mariano’s from 13 in December to 23.

The new Mariano’s, which is southwest of Chicago, will add 450 new jobs to the community, according to a company statement.

“Our Shorewood customers will find an enhanced selection of premium food selections and a wide variety of organic and natural offerings,” said Bob Mariano, chairman and CEO of Roundy’s.
