A Brief History of Our Stores:
Central Grocers services a wide variety of store formats and ethnic groups including Hispanic, Italian, and African Americans. Central serves older smaller stores, the kind that are 5000 square feet found on the local street corner, and for generations, the anchor to its neighborhood.
We also serve 75,000 square foot brand new, large-scale warehouse discount stores that are the latest additions to the communities in addition to large conventional stores in the 70,000 square foot range.
Regardless of store size and purchase volume all member stores are paying the same price. That's important to them and to Central.
Since not every store needs the same assortment, Central provides dry groceries, dairy, deli, frozen foods, produce, and fresh meats targeted by store which greatly expands the offerings available to all stores.
