Clarence Edmond Shackelford aka "Shabba" and aka "M1Y", is a publicist, and the founder of Tour Tyler Texas and also the Texas African American Museum both programs are under the auspices of the Empowerment Community Development Corporation, which is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit. - Written by Smith County:
February 22, 2023, is "Supermarket Employee Day" in Smith County.
The Smith County Commissioners Court adopted this resolution for Brookshire's Grocery Store. Supermarket employees serve our community during disasters, such as winter storms, flooding and pandemics. Help us honor all "Supermarket Heroes" today and every day in all of our grocery stores!
NealandValli Franklin So happy to recognize these “Supermarket Heroes”!
Brookshire Grocery Co. was founded on Sept. 1, 1928, when Wood T. Brookshire opened the Company’s first store in downtown Tyler, Texas. Throughout our 90-year history, BGC has remained deeply committed to serving our customers and communities.
