Boys and Girls Clubs of East Texas present honor to BGC


The Boys and Girls Clubs of East Texas named Brookshire Grocery Co. the Champions of Youth Award recipient for 2011.

Brad Brookshire, chairman of the board for BGC, accepted on behalf of the company at the Fourth Annual Champions of Youth Luncheon hosted at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler.

The award was given in recognition of BGC’s extraordinary support and generous contributions to the success of youth through the Boys and Girls Clubs.

“There are so many wonderful things that happen in this community because of Brookshire Grocery Co.” said Mark Scirto, a meteorologist with a Tyler television station and event emcee.

Scirto also commended BGC for its support of the East Texas Food Bank and donations raised for children’s programs through Brookshire’s Benefit Golf Tournament.

“We are honored to be alongside the distinguished list of past recipients who also believed in the work of the Boys and Girls Clubs of East Texas,” Brookshire said. “I am very proud that our company has been involved with the clubs for a number of years. It is a privilege to support an organization that realizes the potential of our youth—those being developed into future leaders and future contributors to our community and beyond.”



Brookshire’s in Nashville kicks off grand reopening


Crews recently transformed Brookshire Grocery Co.’s ALPS into a Nashville Brookshire’s, and Store Director Blake Strube was one of many employees excited to offer additional products and services. 

“I think the most notable feature is the deli and bakery,” Strube said. “Customers are very excited to be able to pick up ready-to-eat items and fresh-baked items.”

The official grand reopening began October 5, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony was conducted on October 7.

As part of the ceremony, Strube and company officials donated $1,000 to three Nashville-area nonprofit organizations: Howard County Single Parent Scholarship Foundation; Elberta Arts Council; and Howard County Children’s Center.

During the project workers painted the exterior and interior of the store and installed new décor and signage throughout. The store’s market was remodeled and offers fresh-cut meats and seafood. Also, produce was upgraded and expanded with a larger variety of fresh vegetables. It also includes a cut fruit section.

New dairy cases were added, and the grocery, perishable and frozen foods sections received new equipment. In addition, the store office was remodeled to better serve customers.
