A Little History
Almost 50 years since Roger Drake purchased his first supermarket in 1974, Drakes Supermarkets has now become the largest independent grocery retailer in Australia. While we’ve grown from one store to more than 60 stores across South Australia and Queensland, Drakes Supermarkets has retained the same values since day one.
Our mission at Drakes is to provide our customers with exceptional service, value for money, a great range and an outstanding shopping experience. To achieve this, we acknowledge that our customers are the most important people in our business.
We value long-term supplier relationships, and our company’s strength lies in operating on the principles of a family business, and supporting local manufacturers and suppliers.
We will always support local, and all profits remain in Australia. It’s the Drakes way.
