On Friday, it was announced that the 22-year-old Tom Thumb grocery store at 2600 Flower Mound Road, located on the northeast corner of FM 3040 and FM 2499 adjacent to The Mound will be closing soon.

The parent company, Albertsons Companies, based in Boise, Idaho, included the southern Flower Mound store as one four stores in North Texas, it has decided to close.

According to a letter from Doug Campbell, vice president of Merchandising and Marketing for the Southern Division of the Albertsons Companies, the pharmacy departments will close before the grocery store’s closings on or around Dec. 1.

“As we all know, it is sometimes necessary to make difficult decisions to ultimately allow our division to become stronger,” Campbell wrote in the letter. “In a necessary step, towards a healthier Southern Division, and after intensive analysis, the decision to close the [Flower Mound] store was made.  We will begin to sell down our inventory immediately.”

Tom Thumb has three other stores in Flower Mound.

    I thought all the new development was supposed to spur economic growth to sustain all the businesses in Flower Mound? Being the closet major grocery store to Lakeside, our previous and current Leaders surely must have predicted the new residents would buy their groceries in Flower Mound.

    It’s sad because my mom has been with the company for 35+ years and at that store for at least 25 of those years and no warnings were given and a very minimal option to be transferred somewhere else.Tom thumb treats employees badly especially the most loyal one’s. Sad just sad…..

    You know you can go to Kroger right? There’s one on Gerault and another on Long Prairie and Cross Timbers. I don’t think you need to boycott a store . Plus if the store isn’t even around are you really “boycotting “ it.? Lakeside has a small market that’s great and Highland Village has a few options including Whole Foods. I’ve lived in the area for 2.5 years now and I’ve never stepped foot in that Tom Thumb. The one in Coppell is plenty nice.

    I will miss this store very much. Nice employees and the perfect size for those of us that don’t want to walk mils to do our shopping. The store had a more personal market feeling that the huge grocery stores have lost. I will not drive to another larger Tom Thumb.

    Lakeside residents use this store as it’s the closest market other than neighborhood Walmart.
    This clorsure is enough for me to boycott Tom Thumb And all Albertsons. I use this store , should I be saying, USED!
    Bad decision by a non resident Albertsons executive.
    Other store have other markets close by.
