Heinen's and University Heights celebrate 60 years together
Heinen’s Grocery Store is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2019. For 60 of those years the family-owned grocer has served the residents of University Heights.
Mayor Michael Dylan Brennan presented Jeff Heinen a proclamation declaring Friday, Feb. 15 “Heinen’s Day” in University Heights, at Heinen’s 2180 South Green Road location.
Heinen’s story began in 1929 when local butcher Joe Heinen pioneered the city’s first supermarket by selling traditional grocery items alongside hand-butchered meats. Bringing these two shopping experiences together was revolutionary in the grocery industry, but what truly set Heinen apart was his commitment to quality.
Throughout 2019, Heinen’s will host special anniversary sales and events to thank its customers for their decades of loyalty.
Mike Cook is the communications and civic engagement coordinator for University Heights.
