Our next expansion was to the Hickory Hill community. In August of 2009, we re-opened a former Kroger location at Kirby and Winchester. The store was completely re-done with all new equipment and decor. This is a wonderful community which has welcomed us warmly. We are happy to serve the Hickory Hill community and be a part of it's revitalization.
In October of 2010, Stepherson, Inc. became an Employee Owned Corporation with the formation of our Employee Stock Ownership Program. All of our employees now have the opportunity to become part owners of the business.
In order to better serve our growing number of locations, we moved into a warehouse and central office facility on American Way in the summer of 2011. This has allowed us to purchase better to continue to provide our customers with the lowest prices we possibly can.
We expanded to Mississippi in February, 2012 when we opened a former Schnuck's location on Goodman Road in Southaven, MS as Superlo Foods #5. We have been warmly welcomed in the Southaven community and look forward to serving it for many years to come.
October of 2014, we continued our growth in Memphis with Superlo Foods #6 by purchasing a long time neighbor, Cooper's neighborhood store on Quince Road. The Cooper family joined the Superlo Foods family as we expanded our service in the East Memphis area.
November 1, 2017 we expanded again by opening Superlo Foods #7 at 3071 S. Perkins Rd. We began an extensive remodel of that store immediately after New Year's in January of 2018. The construction is slated to be finished in the late spring of 2018, and we are looking forward to serving the community of Parkway Village with that newer facility.
Stepherson, Inc. is focused on continuing our efforts to serve the public through great selection, quality products, and prices you can raise a family on. We continue to re-invest in our community to enhance the lives of all of our customers and associates. We are giving back to our communities through our Community Card program.
