Bo’s Food Stores was established in 1962 by the Abbott family. Bo’s Food Stores was always known as the hometown grocery store with quality products and competitive meat and grocery prices. They sold the stores to Spartan Nash on 6/1/2015. The Brahmbhatt/Modi family purchased the stores on 12/7/2015. When purchasing the stores they made it clear nobody would lose their job. Arren Stone worked with Bo’s Food Stores 45 years and continues to be the general manager. Cyndi Mayes worked with Bo’s Food Stores 22 years and continues to be the assistant general manager.
The only changes made to the stores are positive changes such as implementing the meat bundle program and fresh seafood at select stores. The Brahmbhatt/Modi family merged their grocery store, known as Kash & Karry in Lumberton with the other twelve stores. On 1/1/16, they purchased the Piggly Wiggly in Chadbourn. They plan to expand the chain over the next few years.
