Our Story

J.S. Dillon founded his first grocery store looking for a better way of providing food for his own family of twelve. With this mind set, he treated his customers the same...giving them the best product for the best price. Today, his vision has grown, developed and evolved, but the concept of unwavering passion for serving others has never changed at Dillons.
