Brookshire Grocery Co. held three ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Sept. 13 – one each in Anson, Merkel and Winters, Texas – completing the openings of 25 Spring Market stores.
The 12,000-square-foot stores offer customers a full shopping experience with produce, market, dairy, bakery, grocery, and health and beauty care items, as well as fuel centers. Many stores also carry alcohol where permitted. Store directors in each Spring Market already are becoming involved in local communities, as evidenced by the presence of high school bands, cheerleaders, fire departments, mayors and many other community officials at each of the ribbon-cutting events.
The banner name represents and honors the company’s 88-year history, which began with the opening of its first store, on Spring Avenue in Tyler, Texas, on Sept. 1, 1928. In addition to the three new locations, Spring Market stores now are open in the Texas cities of DeKalb, Diana, Edgewood, Frankston, Godley, Grandview, Haskell, Hughes Springs, Italy, Kemp, Leonard, Lone Star, Naples, Palmer, Redwater, Waskom and Whiteright.
Tyler, Texas-based Brookshire Grocery Co. operates 177 stores in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, with three distribution centers and six manufacturing facilities.
