Brookshire's Weekly Ad - Brookshire Grocery Company is a Tyler, Texas-based supermarket chain with 177 stores operating in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Until February 2011, the company had operated four stores in Mississippi but pulled out with a sale to Kroger and a local chain, Food Depot.
The company was founded in 1928 by Wood T. and Louise Brookshire, when they opened their first 25 x 100-foot (30 m) store on Tyler’s downtown square. Brookshire's was originally part of the Brookshire Brothers chain, which was founded seven years earlier in Lufkin, Texas. The companies split in 1939, when Wood T. Brookshire took control of the Tyler-area stores in exchange for his share in the Brookshire Brothers partnership. The companies are no longer related except by name.
In June 2016 Brookshire's purchased 25 stores formerly owned by Wal-Mart (formerly their Wal-Mart Express brand). The stores, located in Texas (20 stores) and Louisiana (five stores) will be re-branded as Spring Market (the name taken from Brookshire's first location on Spring Avenue in Tyler).
