Brookshire Brothers Coming to Lumberton, Texas!
Lufkin, TX (June 1, 2020) – Brookshire Brothers is expanding its presence this summer in Hardin County in Southeast Texas. Company President and CEO John Alston announced the June first acquisition of the Market Basket location in Lumberton, Texas. This is the second Market Basket location Brookshire Brothers has acquired in the last year.
In making the announcement Alston said, “On behalf of our Brookshire Brothers’ team, I would like to express our thanks to Skylar Thompson and the Market Basket group for allowing us to work with them on assuming the operations of their Lumberton location. Our companies share a long history of serving communities across Texas and Louisiana and we are committed to providing our shoppers in Lumberton with the same great selection of products and exceptional service that the Market Basket team is known for.”
As part of the Lumberton transition, Brookshire Brothers will close the store at 421 South Main Street while it brings in new inventory and renovates key areas – including a full-service deli. Kenneth Brown will lead the Brookshire Brothers team as its Lumberton Store Director.
To prevent any disruption in service, all Market Basket pharmacy customers’ prescriptions are now at the Brookshire Brothers Pharmacy at 202 North Main Street in Lumberton. Please call the Pharmacy at 409-755-0451 if you have any questions.
Brookshire Brothers, an employee-owned company headquartered in Lufkin, Texas, has 116 retail locations including a standalone pharmacy in Lumberton and grocery stores in both Kountze and Silsbee in Hardin County. Last summer, Brookshire Brothers purchased Market Basket’s Many, Louisiana location. This is its second Market Basket acquisition. Brookshire Brothers expects to reopen the store to serve Lumberton by June 17th.

Growing With Jarrell, Texas
Lufkin… Brookshire Brothers is purchasing a store along the busy I-35 corridor just north of Georgetown. In making the announcement, company CEO John Alston said, “We are continually looking for opportunities that make sense strategically for our company. The phenomenal growth in the Williamson County area and the visionary leadership in the region made acquiring a Jarrell location a great fit.”
Brookshire Brothers is purchasing an existing SunFresh Market from a pair of real estate developers who knew having a grocery store and an ample water supply would be integral to the success of their long range plans for Jarrell. After they got SunFresh up and running, they began looking for a buyer with grocery experience. Brookshire Brothers was interested. The company already operates several stores along I-35 including one in nearby Salado and further north in Lorena.
Jarrell’s Mayor Larry Bush is equally excited about Brookshire Brothers coming to town, “The City is experiencing explosive growth. We have plans for nearly 7000 homes/apartments on file, have recently begun an expansion on our Wastewater Treatment Facility to quadruple its capacity and are working on bringing another 10.5 million gallons of water/day to the city to support the growth. We know Brookshire Brothers can provide the citizens of the area with choices and options that support the growth and diversity of our population. We’re delighted this employee-owned company wants to grow with us.”
Brookshire Brothers has plans to take over ownership of the SunFresh Market located on Town Center Boulevard in Jarrell in early November. Residents throughout the area will receive the store’s weekly ad making them aware of the new in store offerings which will include a full service deli, bakery and meat market.
