CLEVELAND — The downtown Heinen's in the historic Cleveland Trust Building will finally reopen after being shutdown for the past four months. Starting on Wednesday, Oct. 7, the family owned grocery store opened its doors yet again.
The store was closed on May 30 after it was damaged during the protests that ravaged the downtown area during the George Floyd demonstrations.
“We would like to thank our customers for their patience as we repaired the damage that occurred at the end of May and thought about solutions to address the operational challenges COVID-19 presents,” General Manager Josh Carter said.
The downtown Heinen's opened in 2015 and will continue to have the same hours as all other Heinen's locations. Those hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
“Due to a variety of factors, we have made the difficult decision to not open the Rotunda space at this time. We know there is a need for a grocery store in the area and are pleased to take this first step toward operating as normal,” co-Owner Jeff Heinen said.
Due to COVID-19, the store's capacity will be limited to 40 customers at a time and masks must be worn when you enter. There will also only be one entrance that is located on Euclid Avenue.
