EAST GREENWICH â Some people think outside the box.
Jerry Thompson thinks outside the box stores.
Thatâs what Thompson, who has run Briarbrook Farm with his family decades before Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Loweâs or Target even existed, calls those mega-chains â âBox stores.â
These are chains, which bind and constrict. Now entering its 62nd year, the Mom and Pop operation that is Briarbrook â a fixture on South County Trail since Truman was in office â has succeeded in competing with one-stop mega-stores.
