Heinen’s Grocery Store will open a store Wednesday, Aug. 13, in Bannockburn, its third Chicago-area store.
The family-owned chain based in Cleveland already has groceries in Barrington and Glenview. It plans to open another store this fall in Lake Bluff.
“We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and having customers leave our store feeling better than when they arrived,” said Jeff Heinen, who oversees the chain with brother, Tom.
Heinen’s stores feature in-store butchers and source-verified meats, chef-prepared foods, organic products as well as a gourmet cheese and wine department. A wellness center offers one-on-one coaching and counseling.
The company was founded in 1929 in Shaker Heights, Ohio, by Joe Heinen, a local butcher. The chain now has 20 stores, 17 of them in suburban Cleveland, and employs more than 3,000 people.
