Super 1 Foods and other stores owned by Brookshire Grocery Co. are extending the 5 percent discount for senior citizens and critical and emergency service providers through Tuesday, Aug. 4.


Participating stores include Brookshire’s, Super 1, Spring Market and FRESH by Brookshire’s, according to a news release.


BGC has offered both discount programs for more than 13 weeks and has been able to save discount recipients more than $10.4 million during the pandemic, according to the release.


The senior citizen discount is available upon request to customers age 60 or older with valid ID. BGC is also still strongly encouraging that the first two hours of operations be reserved as a dedicated time for senior citizens and critical and emergency service providers.


The company is also offering a 5 percent daily discount on store brand products for critical and emergency service providers through Aug. 4. To receive the discount at checkout, critical and emergency service providers must present active first responder, hospital or military identification or name badge.


“We are grateful to be able to continue to give back to those who are serving on the front lines as well as those who are at high risk,” said Brad Brookshire, chairman and chief executive officer for Brookshire Grocery Co. “As we deal with this pandemic, we believe it is important to show appreciation to those who are serving on the front lines caring for our neighbors. We will continue to give back to our customers and communities while making safety our top priority in our stores.”
