Brookshire Grocery Co. today opened its new and improved Super 1 Foods store in Tyler – the second if its kind and the first in Texas.
The Super 1 Foods store, at 1105 E. Gentry Parkway, replaced the smaller, 27-year-old store next door to it and is the second one of its kind to offer a larger selection of produce, bakery and deli products, as well as tout a new design, Mike Terry, executive vice president of retail operations for Brookshire Grocery Co. said. The first store with the new design opened about six months ago in Carencro, La.
The new Tyler store is 58,000 square feet, about 20,000 square feet larger than the store it is replacing, Terry said. The old store will be demolished to make room for an expanded parking lot.
Today's grand opening ceremony also celebrated the grand opening of two additional Super 1 Foods stores that were recently renovated.
The store on 3828 Troup Highway was updated with new signage, floors and a new décor package, Terry said, adding that all Super 1 Foods stores will be given a facelift. The store at 113 NNW Loop 323 was a Brookshire's turned into an upgraded Super 1 Foods store.
