Brookshire Grocery Co. announced the acquisition of a 31,000-square-foot Minyard Food Store in Seagoville, Texas.

According to the announcement, Brookshire will close its existing store in the market today, and reopen the old Minyard store under its own banner tomorrow. The new store, the company said, “will allow Brookshire’s to offer pharmacy services in Seagoville. It will feature Brookshire’s traditional grocery, market, produce, bakery and deli departments.”

“We will continue to work hard to get the new store reset and ready to open with literally no interruption to business,” said Brookshire president/CEO Rick Rayford.

Tyler, Texas-based Brookshire operates a total of 156 stores in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi.
