Fred's History

Fred's logo

IN 1947, Paul Baddour and his two brothers opened a small discount store in Coldwater, Mississippi. While the company was originally incorporated as Baddour, Inc., Paul later named one of the stores after his brother Fred, and the name stuck.

Fred's store front

The company opened stores in small towns and offered deeply discounted prices on closeout items. Fred’s stores did quite well, even competing against the giant Walmart by expanding store sizes from the usual 5,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet or more.

Fred’s has diversified into other areas, including Fred’s Pharmacy, Dollar Stores, GetWell Drug and Dollar, and the Yazoo Trading Company. Fred's pharmacy sign In 2018, the company sold its prescription patient information to competitor Walgreens from their 185 pharmacies. Walgreens paid $165 million for this information after Fred’s was unable to purchase hundreds of Rite Aid pharmacies.

Fred's Super Dollar Sign Fred’s is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol FRED.

The company had annual revenue in 2016 of $2.125 billion but lost $66.5 million. This has caused the company to announce the closure of 159 stores in April 2019 which the company states were underperforming or whose leases were about to expire.

Fred’s company headquarters are located in Memphis, Tennessee.

No issue. Other than no Fred’s bucks.

I bought a freezer at Fred’s in Madison Florida. The price was good, but the Fred’s credits is what brought us to buy it there.
When checking out, I was told their Fred Reward system was down, but I was assured I would get credit for the purchase.
It has been most two months and after several calls to Memphis, I have no credit for the purchase.
I am only asking for credit for my purchase a Fred’s. We are talking about getting another freezer, but if I can don’t get the discount at Fred’s, then Walmart is cheaper.
I have receipt in hand, and have talked to the store manager and called the district office (no return call).

As a long time customer, all I am asking for is the discount promised, in terms of Fred’s Bucks
