More About Tom Thumb
Founded by J.R. Bost and Robert B. Cullum in 1948, Tom Thumb started off after Cullum, a then grocery supplier, bought a small local chain named Toro Supermarkets. It quickly became one of the well-known local supermarkets in the area, and by 1956 it has grown to 20 stores.
Building on this success; Bost and Cullum bought 34 Hinky Dinky stores, 17 Pantry Food Markets, and a gourmet specialty store called Simon David in 1963. After a bit of contemplation, they’ve decided to buy Page Drug stores as well.
Buying Page Drug stores became a turning point of Tom Thumb, as this allowed them to operate a new chain of Tom Thumb Pharmacies.
By 1974, their sales had reached half a billion dollars.
In 2015, under a $9 billion merger deal, long-time Texas grocery rivals Tom Thumb and Albertsons became a part of the same company.
Tom Thumb has now been in operation for 72 years, as of 2020.
Today, other than local grocery stores, you can purchase products from Tom Thumb through their online delivery service. You can browse through 25,000 different items with their nutritional labels and prices. All from the comfort of your own home.
Tom Thumb also has annual fund-raising campaigns, aptly known as Tom Thumb’s Kindness for kids, which benefits children in need. Selected products can be purchased and a portion of the proceeds go to this campaign. Consumers may also donate separately if they wished.
On Apr 22, 2020, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tom Thumb and its partner Albertson’s donated an additional $50M to their hunger-relief campaign.
