ABC Wednesday




B is for Brookshire's.


I didn't have a B picture so when I went here for some groceries this afternoon, I snapped this picture. Brookshire's is my favorite grocery store here in town. It is a privately owned chain of grocery stores operating in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana. This is a big, nice grocery store for our growing little town.

They have a big wharehouse in Tyler where the family also maintains two museums that are free to the public.

See how gray the sky is? It's been like that for the last two weeks. If you would like to join ABC Wednesday go here.

I heard that the groceries in US is very big and right now I have no doubt about this. Great post on ABC Wednesday. I always learn something from this post.

Cheers,

Smart thinking! I've heard of those stores but have never been to one.

Neva said...

I have never heard of Brookshire's...but this looks like a great store to shop for groceries.

The chain stores are everywhere these days, but I guess they make shopping more convenient

I followed the link to the museum and was pleased I did.
The Country Store pictures were great.
I think if a store can maintain these free of charge then I would be glad to shop there.

DeeMom said...

Super Idea...

When I visit other countries I go into their Grocery Stores. It is neat to see how other places do it, either State Side or on the other side of the"Pond"

I was checking out your site today like I generally do in the afternoon and I saw you had your post up already. . . decided I better get hustling and get mine up. Took me hours to get Blogger to work but finally did it.

I have never heard of that grocery chain.

Ah! Food, glorious food!

quintarantino said...

I think you solved very well a little problem you had ...

Peter M said...

Pity about the sky, watch out though these stores will pop up everywhere and your town won't be so little

Andrea said...

We do not have Brookshire's in our area. Interesting "B" post for me to see.

Liz said...

There's something very evocative about that photo. I don't know what it is but it seems right for a small town in Texas (or thereabouts).

Dragonstar said...

Nice picture of an important place - where would we be without the grocery stores?

DarylE said...

Neat .. I have a very good friend who lives in Tyler!

Hello Auntie Sharon, pleased to meet you.
Say hello to your children at school.
Could I write them a letter?
I thought they might like to know about my expedition?

Lots of Love,
Edmund(the explorer) Nesbitt.

We don't have any of those store around here.
It's neat to learn about different areas! Great post!

Nicole said...

The B appears when you need it the most. :)

Great idea for an on the run shot. I don't have a portfolio of pictures to choose from so I'm always running around the house for ideas.

VP said...

It's good to see there's other options to Safeway and Walmart over there. A great B

david mcmahon said...

Hi Sharon,

Great B word. Greay skies are sometimes great for colour contrast in photographs!!

Wish we had some grey skies and some rain here in Oz!

Kelli said...

Great "B" picture! I have to go grocery shopping tomorrow!

The grey skies are going to
eventually clear up, so put
on a Happy Face...

It's cold and grey with a
bit of sun popping out here
to say hello.

Have a Blessed Happy Fun
Creative Healthy Year!!!

And in that store you could find Beans, Broccoli, Bananas, Bologna, Bacon, Butter, Beef, Bagels, Bandaids, Batteries, ... So it is a big B full of Bs.

The sky may be grey but here in England it's done nothing but rain for the last too weeks. Fancy a swap?
