Heinens, Inc. is a family-owned and operated regional supermarket chain in Northeast Ohio. Heinen's was founded in 1929 in Cleveland, Ohio when Joseph Heinen opened a small meat market on Kinsman Road (now called Chagrin Boulevard). After running the store for a few years, Joseph opened his first supermarket across the street from the original butcher shop in 1933.[1] Now known as Heinen's Fine Foods, the company is currently headed by Tom and Jeff Heinen.

On August 22, 2012, after two years of market and distribution logistics research, the company opened its first store outside the Greater Cleveland area in The Shops at Flint Creek in Barrington, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.[2] At that point, the chain served 18 suburban communities in Ohio and Illinois.[2]

On December 21, 2012 came the news that the company had entered into a preliminary agreement with the Village of Glenview, Illinois to build a new Heinen's store on the site of a building formerly occupied by another supermarket. Full implementation of the agreement was said to be subject to a number of environmental, zoning, and licensing contingencies which, if met, would mean that the company could take possession of the three acre site during the second quarter of 2013. It was said to be possible that the proposed new store might open during the summer or fall of 2014.[3]

In September, 2013 it was announced that the company was in the final stages of negotiation with the Geis Companies for a 15 year lease on space in the former Ameritrust Bank complex at the corner of E. 9th Street and Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Plans were for a Heinen's Fine Foods market to occupy the first two floors of the historic Cleveland Trust Co. headquarters building ("the Rotunda") and the first floor of the neighboring Swetland Building. The company was reported to have had a long-standing interest in the downtown area and had come close to a deal for space in a major development on the east bank of the Cuyahoga River just prior to the start of the Great Recession. Company leadership, while acknowledging the risks associated with the deal, were hopeful that the population in the downtown area would continue its recent upward trend and further solidify the new store's customer base.[4]


Heinen's Fine Foods stores are located in 17 cities in the Greater Cleveland area and one in suburban Chicago, Illinois:


Cuyahoga County

Geauga County

Lake County

Lorain County

Portage County

Summit County


Cook County/Lake County
