Now back to Heinen’s Fine Foods and their brand new store in Barrington.  We caught up with the twin brothers who own the company, Jeff & Tom Heinen, when they were together for the new Barrington store debut last week.  This grand opening was a pretty big deal for the Heinen family because it’s the company’s 18th grocery store and the first one they’ve opened outside northeastern Ohio.

Minutes after the first shoppers entered the door last week, I asked Jeff Heinen whether the opening was as smooth as they had planned.  He told me they were very pleased with what their construction crews and Heinen’s employees pulled off in such a short time, despite a few last minute glitches.

For example, Jeff mentioned that they didn’t realize until opening day that the Heinen’s logo had yet to be installed on the brick marquis outside the Shops at Flint Creek.  And, if you were shopping there at times when they cleaned their food prep areas last week, you might have heard the fire alarms go off, triggered by steam from that cleaning equipment.

But Jeff says addressing these last minute details is all part of the process.  “I don’t think people as shoppers fully understand how complex food stores have become.  We produce food in here, we carry 35,000 items, we have tons of merchandising, refrigerated and non refrigerated.  There’s just a lot of moving parts so a lot of things have to happen before opening day.”
