Greer’s story:

Autry Greer opened a grocery store at the northwest corner of Water and St. Michaels streets in 1916. He was a pioneer of the Cash and Carry concept. The Greer store was the first in Mobile to advertise grocery prices, which were the lowest in town.

Five generations after Autry Greer launched her pioneering store, Greer’s is still owned by the Greer family. They operate 28 supermarkets in Alabama, Mississippi and Florida, as well as four Greer’s Ace Hardware Express locations in Mobile and Bay Minette, Ala, and Quitman, Miss.

“We have an amazing team of over 750 people who are here to serve you,” reads Greer’s website. “We hope you enjoy shopping at Greer for generations to come! Our slogan since the early 1900s has been: Greer’s Got It! We guarantee it! We take this very seriously and work hard for you and your family every day.
