SWEETWATER, Texas — Lawrence Brothers Supermarkets, a family-owned chain with 18 stores in Texas and two in New Mexico, has re-signed as an IGA licensee, IGA said yesterday. Lawrence Brothers first joined IGA in 1986 and remained an IGA retailer for nearly 17 years. It was able to rejoin following the acquisition last year of a Fort Worth, Texas, warehouse by Associated Wholesale Grocers. "IGA and Lawrence Brothers share a common philosophy about the importance of community involvement, customer service and family business," Jay Lawrence, president of Lawrence Brothers, said in a statement. AWG now supplies 81 IGA locations in the South and Midwest.
