Woods Supermarkets has served our communities with genuine and warm hospitality for 75 years. From our modest beginnings in Long Lane, MO, we have expanded to ten supermarkets and four convenience stores across Central Missouri. Our success is founded on a true focus to help our teammates achieve their dreams. As a Certified Great Place to Work, we live this and earn the trust of our teammates every day. This, in turn, enables our teammates to deliver Golden Rule Hospitality to our guests, which sets us apart from other supermarkets. Whether custom-cut fresh produce from our Produce Chef, hand-battered fried chicken in our deli, Chef-Created prepared meals and cooking components, Cake Artist Created bakery specialties, or the comfort of one stop shopping, our team is focused on delivering greater than expectations across the shopping trip. As part of one of the largest wholesale buying cooperatives in the United States, we use our buying power to bring you low prices everyday combined with the authentic care of a local supermarket. In all we do, we humbly strive to be Your Everyday Partner. 



Serving Our Communities Since 1947

Woods Supermarkets Inc, began in 1947 in Long Lane, MO when Don and Bertha Woods, purchased a small country general store.  Their first teammate was Bert Burton, whose job was to do whatever was needed, which is the mark of a true grocer. Since our company was established decades ago, Woods Supermarket has continued to offer true values throughout all locations and departments.

From those humble beginnings, Woods Supermarket has grown to 10 supermarkets in the state of Missouri. There are also four Woods Express locations that have convenient fuel stations where our guests can redeem their fuel rewards. Additionally, Woods is continually looking for expansion opportunities.

Whether you are looking for general groceries, premium meats, beer, propane, seafood, fruits, vegetables, or health and care, you can guarantee that Woods Supermarket will offer you true value with a big smile. Woods Supermarket strives to be more than just a grocery store, but a general location that serves as a source for quality goods and services for the community.

Woods Supermarket is here to help you find what you need!
