Bob Mariano, namesake of Mariano's Fresh Market and CEO of Roundy's, will retire in September, according to Kroger, which acquired Roundy's last year.

After Sept. 1, Mariano will serve as strategic adviser to Kroger and Roundy's. He took on leadership of Roundy's in 2002. Roundy's opened the first store under the Mariano's banner in 2010 in Arlington Heights, Ill. Today there are 34 Mariano's locations in the Chicago area.
