    Safeway Inc. (SWY) reported earnings that fell 58% in its third quarter financial results for this current fiscal year. The company announced its plans to exit the Chicago market by the end of 2014 where it operates 72 Dominick’s stores, which the company believes will help give it more flexibility as it streamlines itself. Safeway intends to use an estimated tax benefit of between $400M to $450M to partially offset the tax charges it expects to pay from selling its Canadian business in a $5.7B deal. For the quarter, revenue increased 1.1% to $8.6B while its gross margin dropped from 26.2% to 25.8%. Safeway recorded a profit of $65.8M or $0.27 per share, compared to last year this quarter of $157M and $0.66 per share.
