Heinen's Fine Foods Replacing Bannockburn Dominick’s

The Ohio chain, which has a store in Barrington, will move into Dominick’s space in Bannockburn Green.

Heinen's Fine Foods announced this week that it will take over the 62,000-square-foot Dominick’s space in the Bannockburn Green shopping center, according to The Daily Herald. An opening date has not yet been set.

The chain has 17 stores in Ohio, where it was founded in 1929, and is planning to open a store in Glenview this spring. It’s Barrington store opened two years ago, according to the Herald.

Neil Rigler, an English teacher at Deerfield High School, told Patch that everyone’s talking about the news at school.

“Some people are even wanting to go out to Barrington to look at the other location to get a preview of what we are in for!,” he wrote to Patch.

Patch asked readers last fall what store they would like to see replace Dominick’s.

More than 75 percent of the people who joined a discussion on Patch’s Highland Park and Deerfield Facebook pages want to see Mariano’s take its place. Others mentioned Trader Joe’s, Fresh Market and Caputo’s. The feelings for Mariano’s were strong.

Mariano’s, Whole Foods and other, smaller chains have taken over many of the other stores Dominick’s vacated late last year.

With but one other store in the entire area one has to assume that their supply-chain is going to be both very limited and quite stretched. I won't hold my breath for 'em either being competitive, nor viable viz-a-viz the area's alternatives.

Roundy', er um, Pic N Sav aka Maryannos is way way way overrated. The Fresh Market has terrific array of tasty prepared foods, not much in the way of groceries goods.

Grew up in Cleveland and we all shopped at Heinen's. Great store...you are all in for a treat!

Carol - I heard the same thing, but apparently that wasn't the case. People were getting it confused with the nursery that was at Half Day Rd. & Quentin Rd. in Lake Zurich. That was also a Beeson's and is now a (super nice!) Mariano's! As far as I know, there isn't a Mariano's coming to Bannockburn - although I'd be all for it!!!!

Dominick's used to be a nice chain - back in the 1970's. It's been anything but for decades - it was only a matter of time before it decided that Chiraq was too pricey to operate in - taxes, fees, licensing costs, union wages... Grocery is a notoriously low margin business...
