Albert Heijn (15 October 1865 – 13 November 1945) was a Dutch entrepreneur who was the original founder of Albert Heijn, which is now the largest food retailer in the Netherlands. On his wedding day in 1887, he took over the grocery store of his father, Jan Simonsz Heijn, and the supermarket chain founded by his grandson still carries his name to this day.
The first Albert Heijn store still exists today as a Museum at Zaanse Schans near Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
