Starting today, shoppers can return to Heinen’s in the historic Cleveland Trust Building to get their supply of groceries after the retailer closed its doors four months ago:
“Beginning Wednesday, October 7, Heinen’s Downtown Cleveland will reopen for customers to shop for fresh produce, groceries, packaged prepared foods, sushi, seafood, meat, wine and beer,” the market wrote on its website. “Due to a variety of factors, we have made the difficult decision to not open the Rotunda space at this time.”
Amid the circumstances surrounding the pandemic, the market is taking increased precautions in order to ensure the safety of its customers by limiting occupancy to 40 people at a time and requiring customers to wear masks during their visit.
“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. To allow for adequate social distancing, Heinen’s Downtown Cleveland will limit the store’s capacity to 40 customers and have one entrance located on Euclid Ave. Per the Governor’s statewide mandate, masks are required upon entrance to the store.”
“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,” said General Manager Josh Carter.
The grocer will return to its normal hourly schedule: 8 am – 8 pm Monday through Friday; 8 am – 7 pm Saturday and Sunday.
