A family connects around the table and a sizzling centerpiece of perfectly-grilled steaks. Friends pop the cork, share a laugh and toast togetherness on a warm summer night. The kids leave the catering to one experienced team while they celebrate their parents 50th wedding anniversary.
There's just something about being trusted with so many wonderful occasions, about having deep roots in a community. We've been helping to feed Omaha since 1918 - the city's oldest grocery store. Family-owned and focused on exceptional service since day one.
Our location may have changed with the times - but our core values haven't
From our excellent meat cutters to our personable cashiers, you can count on unmatched, five-star service. Quality and variety also come standard. We offer a full selection of affordably-priced groceries; the freshest produce; and unique, hard-to-come-by products - from rich, sophisticated wines and deliciously home-made artisan bread to Wohlner's private label coffee, entrees, salads and salsas.
Thank you for all the support over the years. It is a true pleasure serving you.
We're proud of that - and our vibrant history, a story that dates back to World War I.
Albert Wohlner opens our original location at 33rd and California St., and the small store quickly gains a reputation as "the finest meat market in Omaha." 16 years later, Wohlner's makes its first move, relocating to 5305 Leavenworth St.
After Albert retures, his son-in-law, Sidney Schwartz, continues the family tradition of service for 25 years. His son, Michael Schwartz, buys the neighborhood grocery store in 1987 and, five years later, doubles the size of the store to 4,500 sq. ft.<
After 74 years on Leavenworth Street, Wohlner's Neighborhood Grocery and Deli moves to Aksarben Village. Two years later, Mike opens a second store at Midtown Crossing, bringing Wohlner's back to its original neighborhood on 33rd St.
Mike sells the Aksarben location to concentrate on his thriving store in Midtown Crossing.
Wohlner's celebrates 100 years in business, making it Omaha's oldest locally owned grocery store.
