OUR STORY
OUR STORY
  • The Beginning

    On Sept. 1, 1928, Wood T. Brookshire opened a small grocery store in downtown Tyler, Texas (pictured). The store was only 2,500-square-feet and had four employees. W.T. laid a solid foundation on the principle of great service (he was known to literally jump over the counter to help his customers), and it kept the company growing. By 1939, he had established an office and bookkeeping department and had three stores operating in Tyler, one of which being the first air-conditioned grocery store in East Texas. His fourth store was the first outside of Tyler, opening in Longview, Texas, in 1939.

    BGC has expanded significantly since 1928. The first store outside of Texas was opened in 1961 in Shreveport, La., and the company also expanded into Arkansas in 1975.

The company also expanded its Logistics operations with warehouses being opened in 1953 and Monroe Distribution Center and SouthWest Foods warehouse being purchased in the 90s. The FRESH by Brookshire’s store opened in 2011 in Tyler, and Spring Market banner was launched in 2016 with the opening of 25 new stores.
