Kaufman Brookshire’s receives renovations
Grand reopening celebrations were hosted March 27 for the recently renovated Brookshire’s Food Store located at 2235 S. Washington. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at 10am and featured Chamber of Commerce President Anne Glasscock, Kaufman Mayor Dr. William Fortner and Brookshire Grocery Co. Chairman of the Board Brad Brookshire. Brookshire’s Store Director Paul DiBari presented donation checks totaling $1,000 each to the Genesis Center of Kaufman, Kaufman High School and Scurry-Rosser High School.
The 52,680-square-foot store now features a modified storefront and a remote drive-thru pharmacy lane for increased customer convenience. Other upgrades include modern and sleek décor inside the store, polished flooring that reduces the amount of cleaning agents used, new check stands and enhanced lighting. The deli received an all new line-up, including an expanded chef-prepared section, a pizza operation that prepares freshly baked and take-and-bake pizzas, a sushi bar and gourmet olive bar, in addition to a new dining area with free WiFi. The upgraded bakery department now boasts a cake decorating station where customers can view in-progress cakes and other bakery creations. Brookshire’s wine and beer area was expanded to provide customers a wider, more diverse selection of beverages.
The grand opening festivities will continue throughout the following weeks with special giveaways and promotions. An Apple iPad and 25 reusable grocery bags will be given away each week until April 23 through a sweepstakes customers are entered into by using their Thank You Card. In addition, a free 1,000 yourpoints coupon will be offered to any new or transferred prescriptions filled at Brookshire’s pharmacy. More special offers will be announced in the weekly grocery ads.
