Brookshire's - Texas grocer
Brookshire's was founded in 1928 by Wood Brookshire in Tyler, Texas. The store became the first air conditioned grocery retailer in that eastern region of the state. The company began with a 25x100 ft store as a partnership with his four brothers. The retailer's first warehouse was opened in 1953. Today there are over 150 different store locations across Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. Store locations have one of four different company banners; Brookshire's Food Stores, Super 1 Foods Stores, Ole Foods and FRESH by Brookshire's. There are now three distribution centers to stock the shelves of all store locations. The company supports over 800 charitable organizations each year.
