Brookshire Brothers // and its family of brands operate more than 110 locations across Texas and Louisiana. Brothers Austin and Tom Brookshire opened the first store in Lufkin, Texas on September 21, 1921.
Headquartered in the East Texas town of Lufkin, Brookshire Brothers' assets today include a family of more than 110 retail outlets incorporating grocery stores and convenience stores, as well as free standing pharmacy, tobacco, and gasoline locations.
Following growth through the 1950s and 60s, Austin Brookshire's three sons, Oscar, Eugene, and R.A., assumed leadership and grew the company to more than 70 stores. In 1999, as the surviving brothers neared retirement, the company embarked on an employee-owner stock buy out. By 2006, Brookshire Brothers achieved 100% employee-ownership.
Brookshire Brothers continues to expand its footprint. It acquired the assets of David's Supermarkets out of Grandview, Texas in 2014 and built additional stores in Zavalla, Apple Springs, Pilot Point (at the location of a closed ALCO when that firm went out of business), Hamilton, and Canyon Lake, Texas.
