New Food Depot Opens in Jackson
Food Depot opened on Terry Road in the old Brookshire's building. Brookshire's closed three years ago. Food Depot is a locally owned company. The 55,000-square-foot Jackson store is the state's 13th Food Depot. "Of course we offer everyday low prices. We don't do any gimmicks or giveaways -- we pass all the savings on to the customer," said Food Depot owner Roy Sims. "We have a full meat and produce department. We cut fresh meat every day." Developers put in up to $3 million to get the grocery store going. The store employs 65 people.
