Brookshire Brothers in Trinity TX are nothing but thieves. When I pay for my groceries I expect to find all of them in the bags when I get home. It may only be a pack of hotdogs this time, but since this happens all too often I can only asssume it is intentional rather than absolute gross negligence. Must be the only way they can make a profit is to steal from people.

Brookshire Bros. Has the highest prices I have seen in in any other grocery store. They take advantage of the elderly. They know alot of them cannot drive far. and the dollar store sells frozen foods now. But most of it is freezer burnt. Trinity refuses to let another store to compete with Brookshire Bros.
Its just plane money grubbers.

Produce good? Maybe so when you can get rid of the rats. They do take advantage of the seniors and the handicaped because these people are not has readily able to travel to Huntsville or somewhere else to shop. Why remodel the front when they are already higher than most grocery stores around then use this as an excuse to go up even more?

if there was no BROOKSHIRE BROS all the drug deals would have to move to another parking lot.

Brookshire Bros would make plenty of money if they lowered their prices to a fair national percentage rate. Then those of us that elect to drive all the way to Lufkin, Livingston or Huntsville to save on large grocery runs would absolutely stay within our community to shop.

When you are getting elderly driving all the way to these larger communities where stores often sell the same products for much less gets to be a dangerous affair. I have seen prices at WalMart, Kroger, HEB, etc. sell produce and dry and canned goods 15% to 70% cheaper sometimes, especially on produce and refrigerated and frozen goods.

When pineapples are in season at WalMart they are .97 each and I have seen them 4.99 each at BB. Same with avocados, squash, potatoes, onions, apples, plums, heck I could list just about every single item!

If you are making a grocery run that is a large one, like $200 or more, your savings can often be well over $40, and sometimes $55-$60 by driving to Huntsville or Lufkin. This is substantial and absolutely covers the fuel. But time is money also, and of course the impact on personal safety for a long trip if you are elderly must be considered. Sometimes we are just trapped.

These owners/managers of Brookshire Bros are just obscenely greedy. And the manager is even a member of our own community!

Has anyone noticed that the Brookshire Bros in Lufkin and Huntsville is priced far lower than the one in Trinity? Has anyone noticed that the store in Onalaska is sometimes as well!!!

Now that is just plain rude.

The Trinity store manager should be called out on this by our community. These practices have gone on far too long.

BROOKSHIRE BROS:

This store's prices are obscenely high, they often, and we are talking sometimes VERY OFTEN have items on their shelves that are rotated to the front that are a few days to several weeks past the expiration date.

Next time you go shopping, take a few minutes to cruise through the store and really look at the expiration dates on their products. It will astound you just how many items that one can find that have been rotated to the front of the shelf that are often a week and in some cases a month out of date.

Don't believe me? TRY THIS TODAY! Then report back to Topix. We were on 11/16 able to find 39 items that were between one week and 20 days past expiration.

The refrigerated goods like milk, coffee creamer, orange juice, etc. are a lot of times already bad far in advance of their expiration dates because they have been stored on the floor or in boxes in the back over long periods without refrigeration. This occurs more often in the summer, but mishandled goods like this can be noticed quite often.

I am so positive that this occurs daily that I am calling out all Trinity Topix readers to please chime in here. We have seen it on (almost) every trip! The summer days are the worst though.

When a store charges far too much to begin with, the least they could do was take care of their products so they will not make us sick or at least completely waste our money.

When this occurs you can often take them back and if they are indeed bad and still within the expiration date it is no problem to either exchange or get your money back. But what about the time and fuel wasted? What about those of us that live 15 miles from town??

Try to take back goods that are already expired that you did not notice! If you get home and accidentally misplace your receipt, the attitude comes out - depending on who is taking care of it though. Some of the employees know about this practice and will immediately without problem take care of this, so it's pretty obvious that they know about these practices.

They also know that a huge amount of the surrounding population lives to far out to make a trip for 2-3 items, especially when they know that we only make these shopping trips weekly or longer apart.

This store is nice, they have great produce (often priced far too high though - in summer sometimes 4x over WalMart etc.) but they are absolutely charging far to much.

The worst practice they are guilty though is the way they mishandle their products. And this one can be a public safety issue, especially for the elderly and very young!

Those of us that live in the outlying communities and have to drive more than 10-15 miles to go to the store are constantly irritated by their poor business practices than those that live a few blocks away.

Do like we do. Go to the dollar store and get most of everything. Then we usually take a trip to huntsville sometime that week and buy anything else we need. Haven't stepped foot in bb in over 5 years and will make it much longer. They can charge what they want plus the city gets a chunk of the tax from them so its all good!!
