About Us

Screen_Shot_2013-04-22_at_8.25.44_PM.pngThe original Tallassee Super Foods opened as Big Bear on August 5, 1967 on Gilmer Avenue in Tallassee. Part of the Hudson-Thompson grocery company based in Montgomery, original manager Mr. Watson purchased the store for himself by the late 1960s, and in 1973 the store became known as Super Foods.

Gene Lawrence was one of the original employees, and he married Linda Watson in 1969. Their sons, Ed and David, literally grew up in the grocery business. Today, David co-owns the store with his father.

In the mid 2000s, Super Foods began a Cost Plus 10% sales program, which has contributed to the rapid growth and success of the store. On August 6, 2010, Super Foods East opened on Notasulga Road, and on March 5, 2013, the original store moved across Gilmer Avenue to its present location. A grand opening was held between April 10-23, 2013.
