My Store:

Our History

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.

Today, grandsons Tom and Jeff Heinen lead their team of knowledgeable associates in continuing to serve area customers by delivering on Joe's original philosophy … to provide world-class customer service while offering the freshest, highest quality foods. Twenty-three neighborhood Heinen’s Grocery Stores now serve various communities throughout Northeast Ohio and the Greater Chicago area. We look forward to continuing our work as the local, family-owned and operated grocery store.
