Nestled in the vibrant and unique neighborhood of the South Main Arts District.
“A much needed addition to the South Main area. A true local market but the product of a full service grocery store. Great brands, local product, outstanding meat and beer selection.”
“Rick James and the South Point Grocery family are exactly what I was hoping for and what our neighbors downtown have been asking for,” Archer said. “We are so pleased to welcome their family business to our neighborhood. Plus, we have been able to save another historic building in the process – giving it new life and new purpose.”
South Point will carry a wide assortment of fresh produce, dairy, frozen food, ice cream, beer and wine, and includes a deli department and meat service counter with an onsite butcher.

Though South Point’s main goal is to provide downtown residents with all of their ordinary grocery needs in one shopping experience, there’s a few interesting additional elements. Local chef Josh McLane will spearhead the kitchen, featuring 12-15 unique sandwich offerings for customers to “grab and go.” Locally-operated and certified humane Home Place Pastures will be showcased in the meat department. The front porch allows seating for 42, arranged in a work/eat/meet/entertainment style for customers. And finally, the neon signage – designed and created by Chuck Mitchell and Frank Balton Sign Co. – allows South Point to solidify its place in Downtown Memphis.
The full square footage of the first floor is 13,250 square feet, with about 9,000 available for the sales floor. The store is furnished with all new equipment and will showcase local vendors from across the Mid-South. “This is an exciting time for our South Main neighbors, our suppliers, our company and our family,” James said.
