You’d like a fresh barista coffee while you shop for groceries? Yes please!
Next time you’re wandering through Milsons Point, make a point to stop and visit Centro Store, where you can pick up a barista-made coffee alongside fresh local produce and meats. Their iconic star logo makes it easy to spot near the famous North Sydney Luna Park welcome arch.
Centro is a family-owned business, led by Mike Khassawneh, who has successfully operated in the grocery industry for more than a decade. The Centro team share a passion to provide the community with environmentally-responsible sourced products at a competitive price.
“Centro is a name chosen that encapsulates a place of central point. It enables people to feel that our retail outlets are centred around specially chosen areas. A place to gather and shop, central to a specific location.”
If you value good quality groceries, with a wide selection of international products, then Centro is your one stop shop.
You can find everything from American cereals such as Lucky Charms and Reese’s puffs, to packaged meals including Thai Beef Salad, Chicken Poke Bowls, and Italian Vegan Bowls. Their signature Acai Bowl is also a very popular seller.
“We realise that today’s community is both diverse and multicultural, so to cater for their needs, our stores stock a wide range of international products in addition to, local fresh produce and meats,” Mike said.
“Our ‘Food To Go’ section, designed to meet today’s highly charged lifestyles, offers a barista style organic coffee.”
Centro’s priority to provide customers with excellent service and products is also driven by the diverse demographic on the North Shore.
“There is an abundance of people both working and living in the area that often need last minute groceries and meals. We feel our unique offering helps time poor people make easy choices with their requirements,” said Mike.
“We love the people of North Sydney. They are always so courteous and appreciative.”
Mike says working together as a family can provide some interesting dinner time conversations.
“We do have a chuckle at times with some of our funnier customer interactions we have,” he said.
Another of Centro’s philosophies is the importance of being a valued corporate citizen.
“We believe Centro has a responsibility to be a good neighbour, by maintaining our property in first-class condition and by ensuring the appearance of our plant, facilities, equipment and grounds are always attractive, thus making them an asset to the communities that support our company,” Mike states.
Behind the scenes, Centro offers a competitive edge using new retail techniques and technology to stock perishable and non-perishable consumer goods.
“We are living in an age where unique grocery store environments are in great demand. Our store will differ from the traditional grocery store because of our added personal touch.”
