It’s all about freshness

18 Oct 2011

It’s all about the freshness, says Groceries Express supermarket owner Steve Dellidis.

“One of my business partners was driving through Southbank and saw it as a fresh, new precinct in need of fresh produce,” Mr Dellidis said.

So, in January, Groceries Express was set up on busy City Rd, behind the Crown Casino complex and not far from Southgate.

“Our speciality is freshness,” Mr Dellidis said.

“Our fruit is fresh every day. The same with our vegetables and our meat.”

“As well as liquor and all the regular goods, we have gluten-free produce, organic produce and specialty products that residents will not find in other supermarkets around here.”

Mr Dellidis said it was important to connect with the local community, and “be a part of the community”.

“We have 12 staff and all are locals,” he said.

“Southbank is beautiful.”

“I like the friendliness of the people, and the range of different people you meet here.”

Mr Dellidis said environmental aspects of Southbank were a big plus for attracting businesses and residents.

“The Yarra River, the green spaces – it’s all good,” he said.

Mr Dellidis said it was his first supermarket, and that he and his business partners were looking at opening more.

“We are open from 7am until 11pm, every day of the year,” he said.

“So we are always here for you.”

Groceries Express is at 180 City Rd, Southbank. Call 9686 1561 or visit

    Mr Dellidis is to be congratulated the “Groceries Express” store is one of the nicest places I shop in. The produce & variety of goods on the shelves are excellent. I have for example been searching for Barnes’s honey for months. Would you believe “Groceries Express” have it.
    They also have genuine specials from time to time and I shall continue to support this high standard business.
