BGC-Super 1 Foods Sells Pharmacies in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas to Walgreens

Brookshire Grocery Co. (Super 1 Foods) announced an agreement whereby Walgreens will acquire BGC’s 120 pharmacies in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, which includes pharmacy customer prescription files and related pharmacy inventory. The vast majority of these locations are being converted to Walgreens pharmacies that will operate inside of BGC’s stores.

Eligible BGC pharmacy employees are being offered employment opportunities with Walgreens.

Pharmacy customers do not need to not take any action for their prescriptions to be transferred over. Customers’ prescriptions will transfer to Walgreens automatically. Customers will receive notification in the mail along with details about their prescriptions.

As part of the agreement, a select few pharmacy locations will close. Those patient files will transfer to either another in-store pharmacy at BGC’s or nearby Walgreens retail pharmacy. BGC and Walgreens are committed to finding employment opportunities for substantially all eligible pharmacy employee-partners in other BGC or Walgreens locations. Customers of these locations will be notified, and prescription files will transfer automatically in the coming weeks to nearby Walgreens or BGC in-store pharmacy locations.

Tyler, Texas-based Brookshire Grocery currently operates more than 200 store locations in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma under the banners of Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods, Spring Market, FRESH by Brookshire’s and Reasor’s. 

Walgreens, which operates nearly 9,000 retail locations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, is No. 5.
