Located in the Fairfield Shopping strip, just next to the rather dilapidated foodworks store, and the butcher, lies this friendly, high quality grocer.
Generally, the produce in this shop is of excellent quality, and if you choose carefully, the prices are as good as anywhere else.
Generally, the store is a bit more on the expensive side compared to coles or woolworths- but the quality difference, and the extra shelf life you get makes it worth spending a few bob more for some fruit and vegies.
Daily specials are super competitive, and the stall out on the footpath is always worth a look.
The staff, who all seem to be possibly members of the same extended family are friendly and courteous, and any problems with the bill are cheerfully rectified.
Actually, if I’m totally honest, the staff are almost universally super-cute, and ridiculously charming for the most part, especially on the weekend. I’ll often find myself chatting idly to some of them, who know me a as a regular if its a slow part of the day and there’s not many customers about.
That just adds to the personal and warm feeling of shopping at a truly locally born and bred business though.
One thing I didn’t know about till I did research for this article is that the online store seems to have similar or better prices than in the physical store, though the mangers specials aren’t present. Delivery over $20 is free in the local area. Not half bad. I have no real excuse for suffering the bendy carrots, and other verdant goods on their last legs the coles and woollies seem to manage to hock to the time poor masses.
