South Point Grocery, an urban grocery store.

Urban Grocery Shopping Defies the Status Quo

Uh, oh, it looks like your pantry is almost empty, and your refrigerator is looking bleak. It is likely time to head to the grocery store. Going through the aisles of a chain store can be overwhelming with eye-catching promotions everywhere. You have to navigate through the narrow aisles while pushing a bulky shopping cart and avoiding bumping into other shoppers. To make matters worse, waiting in a seemingly never-ending line can add to the stress of grocery shopping. However, it is a necessary task.

Plus, our store is conveniently located in the South Main neighborhood, making it easily accessible for those who work, live, or play Downtown.

When it comes to grocery shopping, there is a noticeable contrast between a bustling city location versus the suburbs. Jacob Moses, an urban grocery store owner in north Texas, recognized a need for more urban grocery options in his area and opened a similar store. When asked about the importance of opening a store in the downtown community, he says, “He believes people should do their grocery shopping in the neighborhood where they reside. This not only provides monetary benefits by saving on gas and car maintenance, but also countless social benefits. You can exchange a smile or wave with fellow pedestrians and feel a stronger sense of community.”

South Point Grocery shares Mr. Moses’ sentiment. Of the many reasons we decided downtown Memphis needed its own grocery store, bringing together the community was at the forefront. We even offer free live entertainment on most Saturdays, adding to the unique and authentic feel of our neighborhood grocery store.
