Welcome to DeLuca's - Boston's oldest grocery store!
DeLuca's has been at the same location for over 100 years. Born in Italy, Uncle Joe DeLuca (1900-1997)started working in the store which would later bear his name, in 1919.The store soon became known as "the place" in Boston for the finest in fresh fruit and produce. During prohibition and during the war it provided the essential needs of Beacon Hill residents as it still does to this day serving the everyday customer to historic notables such as North Pole Explorer Admiral Richard E. Byrd, President John F. Kennedy, and historian Samuel Elliot Morison all of whom lived near DeLuca's. In 1952, Joe's brother-in-law, Virgilio Aiello, who had a butcher shop in the 1930's purchased the store and added a full line of fresh meat. His son Virgil Aiello added gourmet bread, cheeses, and a complete beer, wine and liquor cellar. Virgil with his able staff still operates the store today, offering the same dedicated personal service and highest quality food products ranging from Corn Flakes to Caviar.
Our product list is quite extensive and if you don't find products that you want on our web-site, please use the Quick Order Form. Pricing on our website is as accurate as possible, but you will only be charged the actual price marked in the store as the items are rung through the check-out. We try to carry everything you might need and offer it to you in any quantity you wish from one potato to a Standing Rib Roast for 12, from table wine to Chateau Lafite and everything in between for just a couple of examples. We look forward to serving you.
