Liebig Street grocer Materia Brother's has launched a delivery service to ensure everyone receives fresh fruit and vegetables.
Co-owner Mario Materia said for the past couple of weeks the small grocery had been busy with people buying its fresh food necessities, but it's begun to slow down.
"We've always done delivery but only to the customers we know," Mr Materia said.
"We've never advertised before now.
"It basically came about as we had a few people asking if we do it due to the circumstances (of coronavirus)."
On Tuesday night, Materia Brothers posted on its Facebook page it would begin delivery services to the south-west community and has received great feedback.
"It's been surprising already," Mr Materia said.
"We had a few orders and more than we thought.
"We've had orders in Warrnambool and a couple in Port Fairy and Koroit.
"It's been a pretty good response for us."
To abide by the strict federal government regulations, Materia Brothers will be dropping orders at people's doors.
Mr Materia hopes the delivery will help sustain his business during these uncertain times.
"We've been pretty busy, but since Monday it's started to slow down," he said.
"Last week was OK but, I guess, due to people obviously panicking and in lock down, business has slowed.
"I'm hoping delivery will help get us through the next two or three weeks."
