Fairplay Foods coming to Oak Lawn and the expanded Wal-Mart in Bedford Park are offering career opportunities.
Two familiar retailers are hiring associates for stores slated to open in the fall in the local area.
Fairplay Foods, the regional grocery store chain that is taking over the former Dominck’s space at 87th Street and Cicero Avenue will be hiring associates for its new Oak Lawn store slated to open this fall.

Fairplay’s vice president of retail operations Michael Kozlowski and a partner in the business did not say how many positions were being offered, what they paid or if health benefits were being offered.
The company’s website did place a premium on happy employees “where all opinions” mattered.
