Brookshire Grocery Co. remains committed to its frontline employee-partners by extending their Appreciation Pay to Nov. 6 as a “thank you” to their employee-partners for doing their best every day to serve customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This Appreciation Pay is an extension of the pay increase ($1 an hour extra) that started March 24 for its more than 14,000 retail and logistics employee-partners.

“Our employee-partners’ service through this pandemic has been and continues to be heroic and inspiring,” said Trent Brookshire, Chief Operating Officer for Brookshire Grocery Co. “As other companies pull back on compensation for their workers, we are continuing to invest in our greatest assets – our partners. I am so proud to be able to give this Appreciation Pay as a tangible offering of our sincere gratitude for everything they are doing. I am so honored to be part of such an incredible team who upholds such high standards for service and safety.”

The increased pay is in addition to the more than $21 million BGC has invested in its employee-partners through bonus checks, gift cards, retail incentives, an extra employee discount, on-site meals, and a compensation plan for those who could be directly affected by COVID-19.
