A long-time fixture on North Timberland Drive in Lufkin will soon be closing. Management at Brookshire Brothers corporate offices, based in Lufkin, made the announcement on Monday, October 17, that their grocery store location at 816 North Timberland will be closing effective October 29.

According to a press release, officials with Brookshire Brothers reviewed the store's production over the last several years and made the decision to close the North Timberland grocery store. The fuel center and Tobacco Barn operations will remain open at this time.

Retail operations at the North Timberland site are segmented into owned and leased parcels. The grocery store operates under a lease agreement that expires in spring 2023, while the fuel center and Tobacco Barn properties are owned by the company. Due to the timing needed to effectively exit the grocery store and return it to the landlord’s control, it is necessary for Brookshire Brothers to cease operations the last full week of October.

“We are sincerely grateful for our loyal customers who have supported the store, and we welcome them to continue to shop with us at our Chestnut and Frank Street locations,” said Brookshire Brothers President and CEO John Alston. “In appreciation, everyone who shops at our North Timberland store between now and October 29, and spends at least twenty dollars per trip, will receive a one-time use coupon for up to $10 in savings on their next shopping trip. The coupon can be redeemed at either our Chestnut or Frank Street stores through November.”

All employees at the North Timberland store will be offered positions within the company. Brookshire Brothers operates two large-scale grocery stores within Lufkin. They are located on West Frank Street and on Chestnut Street.
