Chipain's Family History Lemont, IL

Chipains Fresh Market

We're proud to be family owned for four generations.

Our humble beginnings start in 1929 when Peter Chipain and his wife Alexandra opened the first location in Chicago after immigrating to the U.S.A. from Greece.

The guiding principle that the Chipain family instituted when starting their grocery business focused on providing the highest level of value and quality to the customer. This concept was focused on selling the freshest and the highest quality meat and produce to its loyal customer base as well as maintaining a meticulously clean and well organized display of products. The subsequent generations of the Chipain family have focus on these same principle and provide that same level of quality and freshness in the products it sells today... just as it did nearly 100 years ago.
