Acquistapace Story

About Us

Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket is located at 125 E. 21st Ave. in downtown Covington. Our landmark location is home of the finest produce, meats, cheeses, prepared foods, wine, beer, and spirits and much, much more found on the north shore.

We have another new location in Mandeville, located at the intersection of North Causeway Blvd. and E. Causeway Approach, which boasts a vast array of fine cheeses, wine, and spirits for your next gathering of family and friends.
Our personal and knowledgeable staff is ready to serve you at both locations!


The Acquistapace Family has been in the grocery business for 150 years! Steve Acquistapace’s mother actually was born above the family’s corner store in New Orleans, and the business evolved from a “Mom and Pop” operation into a supermarket through the decades, while still maintaining the “family operated feel” all but forgotten in the grocery business.

Longtime north shore residents will remember when in 1963, Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket opened on Claiborne Hill. The family moved the store to its current location in 1985, where for 31 years it has proudly served the people of St. Tammany Parish and beyond  with the finest groceries available.


The Acquistapace family is dedicated to supporting the community. And while we do our best to accomadate each request, please understand that we receive many requests and may not be able to fulfill all of them.
