Probably one of the smallest Heinen's out there. Set in the upscale market district of downtown Hudson near the Library. Ample parking and easy to find.

The store itself is very clean and the employees are nice. But you will find it difficult to get assistance with beer. I am not sure the store has a wine steward, which is who you must usually seek out in a grocery store.

The focus is on craft beer, with very few macros and the requeset smattering of popular belgians and american microbrews. I am glad to see that many, if not most retailers recognize the growing trend in quality beer. This store seems to reflect that by stocking the fast moving imports and expensive domestics, but it seems the rest of the shelf space is poorly utilized or may be selected by the vendors.

I am also pleased to see they carry both Great Lakes AND Hoppin' Frog. This was impressive given the small size of the beer cooler. Very limited selection of singles. But the prices are on level with other Heinen's, which is pretty good.

This place has a decent suppy, but you can find a better selection close by at Acme or North End Market.

Located in the "First and Main" shopping center. Plenty of parking available next to the store and elsewhere around the mall. It is an upscale grocery store similar to West Point Market in Akron, although significantly smaller. There were some employees around the store, yet there did not seem to be anyone assigned to the wine and beer aisles and it seems doubtful that anyone there would be helpful in offering suggestions or in answering BA-caliber questions. The selection was meek. There were some quality imports and American brews available, but only one small shelf and a small section of refrigerated space was committed to beer. Stock seems fresh, and the beer that I purchased was of good quality. Prices were a bit inflated, on par with West Point. You'll find something you like here, but not worth a special trip.
