Chris Glienke

Chris Glienke has been assistant manager at the Iowa Falls Fareway store for about a month. The Alta, Iowa native has previously worked at Fareway stores in Storm Lake, Fort Dodge and Worthington, Minn. He predicts he’ll be at the local store for three to four years.

Chris Glienke’s goal is to run a Fareway store someday. The 29-year-old’s journey with the Boone-based grocery store company began 13 years ago, but the real road to becoming a manager took off in Iowa Falls this year.

“This is my first store as an assistant manager,” Glienke said. “When I started working for Fareway, I was carrying out groceries in Storm Lake. Then I went to Fort Dodge for college, and then back to Storm Lake and joined the management training program. I was ready to be moved around wherever they moved me.”
