Reasor’s LLC and Brookshire Grocery Co. (BGC) are excited to announce the finalization of their agreement first announced in November. With the confirmed support from the Reasor’s Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP), Reasor’s stores are now a new division of BGC. These stores will continue to serve the greater Tulsa area under the Reasor’s name and with their incredible team. With Reasor’s locations and more than 2,000 people team, BGC now has more than 200 stores with more than 19,000 employee-partners serving in four states.
“This partnership is a true merger of two family-led grocers coming together to better serve the Tulsa community. Our combined team will bring increased resources which will lead to reinvestment in the stores, expansion into new communities, enhanced technology and greater charitable giving,” said Jeff Reasor, who now serves as President of the Reasor’s Division with BGC. “Our respective teams have worked together the last several months to ensure a smooth transition. We are excited for the future and grateful for the community’s support of our Reasor’s stores.”
