Evridges was founded by I.G. Evridge, in 1952 and began operation in a 30’ X 90’ building located at 100 E. Commerce on the square in Brady, Texas. Evridges began as a family business with I.G., his wife, Claire, and their four children. Working as a team in hopes of making a living to support their family, all of the children Joe, Susan, Mary, and Grant played major roles in Evridges’ success. Joe and Mary have retired, and Susan passed away in 2009. Grant and Nancy Evridge are the current owners and operators of Evridges, Inc.
Grant began working at the store at the young age of 13 and did service, delivery, and sales for the store. After graduating from Brady High School in 1970, Grant attended Southwest Texas State University where he earned a degree in business management with the intention of coming back to Brady to help run the family business. While at the university, Grant met his wife, Nancy Carolyn Davis. They were married in 1974 and have two grown children, Wyatt and Bonnie. Wyatt is involved in the family business, and Bonnie lives in Austin and works at TCEQ in the air permits division.
