From our family to yours, we hope you enjoy shopping at Salino's.


It all started when Charles Salino came to Reading from New York City's Little Italy in 1923. Working at numerous Italian groceries in Reading, Charlie gained enough experience in the food business to finally open his own store in 1946. As the years went by and demand grew, the small store in South Reading relocated to its current location at 925 Elm Street where the family operates a retail store and prepares their specialty foods.

Since then, the tradition has continued for three generations. Salino's continues to serve Reading and its surrounding communities with imported and domestic groceries, cheeses, sausages, deli meats, olive oils, and prepared homemade Italian foods. The Reading Fairgrounds and Shillington Farmer's Markets help supply the entire Berks county area with their old world Italian products.

The entire Salino family invites you to visit our store where the aroma of our freshly baked breads and sauces will remind you of the days when our mothers and grandmothers cooked over their coal stoves.
