Filomena and the team at Bayside Fruit N More are coming up to 1 year in the Bayside Village shopping centre down at Glenelg. After taking over the business in mid 2018 they underwent a much needed renovation to bring the store up to its fresh new look. But don’t let their store’s age fool you, they’ve got a long standing relationship with the fruit and veg industry.
Creating a one stop shop for customers is really important to Filomena, so they have built in a continental deli and bakery into the store. You’ll find beautiful South Australian cheeses, meats and breads, as well as ready-made homecooked meals. They even have a florist on site! When it comes to stocking the shelves Filomena always looks for local first. In season South Australian produce has an amazing taste, and really resonates with customers.
Bayside Fruit N More have also partnered with the pharmacy in the Village centre to educate consumers about healthy eating. Once a month a dietician takes a group through the store to teach them about nutritious eating. What fruits and veggies are good for certain health conditions, to better understand good and bad carbs, fats and sugars.
Filomena and the team are bringing back good old-fashioned customer service and are always happy to give their recommendations. Mandarins are a staff favourite, but Filomena can’t go past delicious stone fruit when its in season.
