Brookshire Grocery Co. is giving a $3.6 million investment to its employees in the form of special checks for Christmas.
All employee-partners, with at least one year of uninterrupted service, will receive the equivalent of one-half week’s pay. Those with less than one year of service will receive prorated amounts.
“These checks are an early Christmas gift to our partners to say ‘thank you’ once again for all they have done this past year to serve our customers and communities,” said Brad Brookshire, chairman and CEO.
“Our team’s commitment to service has been truly phenomenal. We are excited to give back to them and their families leading into the holiday weekend.”
These Christmas gift checks are in addition to the increased employee discount that all Brookshire’s partners are able to use on two purchases this week.
Through the years, Brookshire Grocery Co. has grown to become a leading regional grocery retailer with 17,500 employees and more than 205 store locations in four states. Stores operate under the banners of Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods, Spring Market, Fresh by Brookshire’s and Reasor’s.
Also for the holiday, Brookshire Grocery Co. is hosting the 42nd annual Spirit of Christmas Food Drive to help thousands of people in need throughout the more than 160 communities served by BGC stores.
Through Dec. 15, all Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods, Spring Market and Fresh by Brookshire’s stores are collecting donations of non-perishable food items to be donated to local service organizations and food pantries for distribution. Pre-assembled grab bags of food items are available to purchase and donate to the drive, and monetary donations can be made using scan coupons at checkout. Funds collected will be used to purchase additional food items for the drive.
