Today, Fred's Hometown Discount Stores is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, and operates almost 700 discount general merchandise stores, including 24 franchised Fred's stores, mainly across the southeastern states.
In the more than seven years as a national sponsor of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Fred's has raised close to $3 million to support children's hospitals in the communities in which it operates. Fred's operates more than 700 stores and 289 pharmacies and has continuously given its guests the best values on everyday essentials. Fred's believes in the importance of community involvement and supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals because of the connection Fred's has with its customers. Families are important to Fred's Hometown Discount Stores, and its community involvement reflects the commitment to give back to customers.
