Brookshire Grocery Co. to Give Employees Six Weeks of Appreciation Pay for COVID-19 Efforts

    Brookshire Grocery Co. (BGC) is proud to announce an appreciation pay for all hourly retail and logistics employees in recognition for the tireless dedication and selfless service to their respective communities.

    Employees will receive a temporary pay increase of $1 per hour effective March 24 – May 1, 2020.

    “We cannot thank our employees enough for their determination, commitment and care for our customers. We are trying to do everything we can to give back as a reflection of gratitude for what they are doing every day,” said Trent Brookshire, Chief Operating Officer for Brookshire Grocery Co. “Our incredibly dedicated retail and logistics employees are going above and beyond in meeting our customers’ needs. As an essential business for our communities, we will continue to keep our stores open and keep our operations moving to get products on the shelves.”

    This pay increase is following a discretionary bonus given last week that was up to one half week’s pay for all active employees. The company is committed to recognizing and honoring its employees.

    The company has also made other changes in response to the outbreak, "In order to better serve all of our guests, we are limiting the following items: ground beef, fresh chicken, eggs, milk, rice, beans, canned soup, ramen, bread, water, household essentials, sanitation, and cold/flu. We are continuing to receive shipments and restock shelves. We're in this together and it’s important to remain calm. As friends and neighbors let’s continue to come together to support one another and be kind."
