Lufkin, Texas-based Brookshire Brothers is expanding its presence in Western Louisiana with the acquisition of a second location in Many.
“We are very grateful and excited to have the opportunity to serve Many in a wider capacity,” said company VP of Retail Operations Luke Gustafson. “With the Market Basket acquisition, we inherit its greatest asset—amazing partners—some of whom have been with the store since it first opened in Many in 1982.”
Brookshire Brothers will keep its location at 223 S. Elizabeth Street in Many, and its new store, formerly Market Basket, at 175 San Antonio Avenue. Brookshire Brothers expects the Market Basket purchase to be complete by the end of July. It will spend about two weeks in transition before opening as Brookshire Brothers in mid-August.
Brookshire Brothers brings its signature hot deli and fresh offerings to its new location, as well as certified meat cutters who make specialty cuts for their customers. Brookshire Brothers is a company of 5,500 employee owners who are known for their personal service and commitment to the communities they serve.
Founded in 1921, this regional grocery chain operates more than 115 locations that stretch west to the Texas Hill Country and east to Lake Charles, Louisiana. Though its focus remains on traditional grocery and pharmacy, Brookshire Brothers has complimentary formats that include fuel and tobacco operations.
