Brookshire Brothers

Brookshire Brothers StoresBrookshire’s, a grocery chain in East Texas, was first part of Brookshire Brother’s. The two companies went their separate ways when Wood T. Brookshire took over control of the stores in the Tyler, Texas area in 1929 in exchange for his share of the Brookshire Brother’s partnership. The name is the only thing that links the companies now.

History
September 21, 1921 marked the opening of the first Brookshire Brother’s store. It was started by two of the Brookshire brothers, Tom and Austin. The family, as well as cousins and friends, banded together to work toward making Brookshire Brother’s a strong company in the East Texas region. The burgeoning business soon grew to 33 stores by 1928. The split of the partnership left Brookshire Brother’s and the Brookshire Grocery Company as two separate entities.

Brookshire Brother’s purchased the Lufkin Produce Company and Moore Grocery in 1952 and relocated to Lufkin where their headquarters remains today. This was the beginning of the brother’s ventures into wholesale trade and they began selling to other stores. Since then, they constructed corporate offices and a warehouse, but are still located in Lufkin.

The following generation of Brookshires oversaw significant growth in the company. They expanded to 69 stores not only in the eastern portion of Texas, but also western Louisiana as well. Budget Chopper and B&B Foods were also added to the Brookshire Brother’s banner. In 1991, the company diversified, opening its first gas station, all to provide their customers a clean, attractive, and convenient location to purchase fuel. Today, Brookshire Brother’s is one of the leading retailers of Conoco Phillips gasoline. In 1997, the company diversified again opening its first Tobacco Barn offering their customers a full line of tobacco products. They combined one of their gasoline stations and a Tobacco Barn in 1999, continually striving to meet their consumer’s needs.

As the age of the brothers increased, they determined to transfer their company to their family: their employees. Ownership of stock in Brookshire Brother’s soon began until where today, 100% of the company is now owned by the employees of Brookshire Brother’s

    The New Caney store’s deli department is filthy. I bought a salad with a very large horse fly in it!! They had the nerve to offer me another salad I opted for my money back. They are not sincere in their apology and treat you like crap when you attempt to shop again. Shitty establishment.

    I have shopped with you guys from first day you came to Athens,Tx. love your store. have been very loyal. love you remodel. not to keen on you moving every thing around. but can live with it. Im having a very hard time dealing with you food club. Some of its idems are ok but i still prefer some of brand idems. You guys seem to be phaseing out brand idems or just quit carrying them. If you do have them yo only have one or two on shelf. I said all this to say if I have to go to walmart to get the stuff you have quit carring I might as well shop there. its a noght mare to shop there but i still want the things i have grown acustome to. love your store please start listining to the people that made you a great store. thanks Kim K Rose

    Your store in New Caney Tx. where I live always have vegetables that should have beenin the garbage 2-3 days ago and general store prices are about 20% too high. The Lufkin Tx. store is the best store of all. Their fried chicken is the best of all other Brookshire stores. I have been told they are all the same but the taste is not the same.
    The Lufkin store on the west side of town is the best place to get a decent meal.
    Please do something to improve the overall proccess at the New Caney Tx. store.
