Online shopping has arrived at Discount Grocery Warehouse Lavington.
On Monday, December 3 the warehouse opened its online store, offering customers the same prices in-store as well as free home delivery in the Albury-Wodonga area.
Formerly Shepparton Cannery XS, the store’s owner Craig English said a click and collect service was also now available.
“I believe we will be the first discount grocery store in Australia to offer this convenience to our customers,” he said.
Online shoppers are able to purchase everything currently offered in store including fresh meat (prepared by Haus of Meat), fresh fruit and veg, and the store’s full range of groceries.
“I'm also running the same pricing in our online store as we do in store,” he said.
“This will give the people of Albury-Wodonga the opportunity to save heaps on the weekly shopping bill as well as the convenience of free home delivery.”
Mr English said he was often asked how he could offer grocery items at discount prices.
“Firstly, we buy direct from the following suppliers: SPC, San Remo pasta, Hoyt’s spices, Fletcher’s, Coca-Cola, Foster Clark’s, MON, KBs seafood, Pacific West Seafood, Primo smallgoods, Mayfair smallgoods, Don smallgoods as well as many more.
“We have about 100 suppliers and because I buy direct, and I don't have any outside overheads like offices, warehousing, transport, marketing (it's all done in-store), this is a cut cost of business by around 30 per cent therefore makes our product cheaper.”
Mr English has solid foundations in the retail field.
He started in the retail (supermarket) trade 46 years ago and he said “that has been my life”.
He purchased the Border’s Shepparton Cannery XS store in April 2010, relocated it to Urana Road, Lavington and changed the business name to Discount Grocery Warehouse in 2014.
“There is never a dull moment in retail and I have seen a million changes over the journey and I'm sure there will be many more to come,” he said.
