Gallery: Happy Houston residents at Buy-Low Foods

On Nov. 27, 2017 the long wait was over for Houston residents when Buy-Low Foods opened their grocery store doors on their grand opening day. Hundreds of residents filled the Houston mall parking lot, patiently waiting their turn to see the new store. In June 2016, Supervalu closed their doors after 30 years of service. Houston has since been waiting for a grocery to take over the vacant space, and end the commute outside of town to outsource for food and amenities. A year and a half later, smiling residents welcome Buy-Low Foods. “We exceeded all expections. The reception we received from the community is nothing like Buy-Low has every seen,” said Floyd Krishan, manager of Buy-Low Foods in Houston. “Literally you could not move in the store, everyone was super happy. I know that Dan Bregg [president of Buy-Low Foods] was very pleased with the turnout and reception we had. It was nothing like I have ever seen before, and even after that, customers coming in today are super pleased with what the store looks like and my team is very happy.”
