Saying Goodbye to The Pig

The Pig photo piggly-wiggly_zps2c0d5292.jpg

Their motto was 'Local since forever' but nothing remains forever. Sob......

Last month, Piggly Wiggly Carolina announced it will sell 22 corporate-owned stores to Bi-Lo and seven others to Harris Teeter. Only a handful of stores will remain in the Charleston area.

The residents of the Charleston area are in total shock. No one can get their heads wrapped around the fact that there will no longer be a conveniently located Pig in their neighborhood.

The nearest one to me would be south. Down Hwy 17 to Hollywood: a good 30-40 minute drive.

No more Mrs. Mac's Fried Chicken. No more local peaches and other produce. No more Pig decals, cups, T-shirts. No more of those 'one of a kind' local canned goods and gourmet items. The staff of the local Pigs were helpful and friendly.

We grew up with The Pig. The thought of losing it is just too much to comprehend.

I suppose we'll adjust. We'll have to. But that doesn't mean we have to like it.

Count me in on the Mexican food and the margarita!!! After today at work, two would be just about right!!

What a shame about Piggle Wiggly, such a cool name for a market!! We have just about one market to go to here in the high desert and it is nothing to crow about. We go to Costco for our meat since at least they have ratings on theirs, like choice or prime. Sandi has the market of my dreams!!!

Take care Bug, and have a good rest of your work week!!

You'd be more than welcome, Barb!

We've had issues with a lot of small, locally owned businesses going out of business, due to the big box stores and chains. They simply can't compete. So many familiar stores of my childhood are long gone or have moved out of town and just aren't the same.

It's a shame that they can't revitalize downtown areas without destroying the buildings and businesses that give our hometowns their unique 'flavour.'

Hi Bug, I'm sorry that you're going to loose your familiar shopping accommodation.
Living in the heart of an old middle sized town, my problem is just the opposite. A very potent and mighty investor is projecting a huge shopping mall (the sort that once were invented in the US) right across the cozy alley of my flat, after tearing down a smaller and older shopping center, the big building of a bank, a parking accomodation, a building with flats and a restaurant. The investor already has spoilt a lot of German cities, because usually smaller shops adjacent to the new huge - and moreover mostly ugly - malls will have to close due to the lack of customers, leaving the streets of the city dead.
But the city of Mainz is bankrupt (as most of the cities are) and as such it is glad that at least someone will build something new. I'm member of a citizen's group which tries to prevent a project this large, but I fear we won't win ...
So when in some months (maybe 2015/16) three years of construction noise will flood my flat from early morning to late in the evening I should ask for a long sabbatical and will knock some of your doors in order to find a calm refuge, lol.

Hey, Ylee.

I do know some places to eat but they're nowhere near the area I plan going to.

I am tempted, though. I'd love to hit Juanita Greenberg's for some Mexican food and, perchance, a margharita?

I'd just have to hop another bus down to the City Market.

Tipsy bus riding for Friday? lol

Where's your sense of adventure? If you find some place good and cheap, you'll have a go-to place downtown, and if it stinks, it'll be good blog fodder, lol!

I say take your chances! :' )

Karen, glad to hear that mom seems back to normal but keep an eagle eye on her. I've found that our Elderlies tend to downplay problems because they don't want anyone to worry about them or feel like they're being imposed on. Silly notions but there it is.

Hey, Rob. Glad to hear the sun is cooperating even if the temps are not. There's not much we can do except hang on til springtime rolls around again.

Sandi, I am glad ya'll weathered the storm and that C didn't have to deal with a 4 hour commute to work again today.

TWC has had some info on the St Jude storm but I'm getting most of mine from the 'net.

The desk is behaving. So far.

I've turned in a leave slip for a half day Friday. I'll clock out at noon and hop the bus downtown. It will be easier to leave my truck parked at work. The bus drives right by and I can ride free, if I flash my work ID at them.
NOt sure if I'll clock out and eat lunch at my desk or if I'll find someplace downtown to eat. The problem with eating downtown is that I have NO idea what's available and where things are. I suppose I could just throw caution to the wind and go with the flow, for a change!

Hi, Pros. I see you managed to tear yourself away from Mimi long enough to make a post! lol

I can't blame you. She is so adorable.

Shore, welcome home. I know you had a great time but it's good to be back. Or would be, if Miss Dixie will get over her snit and let you have your bed back.

Hi, Bug - safely home. I stopped by my friends' home in Kerrville yesterday and they're suffering the same pangs as you. Albertson's has pulled out of their town, along with another independent, leaving them only with HEB and Walmart. They are not happy campers! Luckily, their kids go over to San Antonio once a week, so anything they need that they can't get in Kerrville can be picked up.

Dixie was a nasty, snarling mess last night, but about 5 a.m. she finally crept out from under the bed and laid on top of it. (I did sleep on the sofa. I was in no mood to press my luck.)

Now, she has made a meow or two and is asleep in her bedroom chair. By tonight, all will be well, I think. Actually, she just made a move for the living room floor. I'll go off to work now and let her nap, and her mood may improve.

So sorry for the loss of the Pig! You are right, nothing is forever. No matter how much we want it to be forever! Unfortunately.

Here is something more cheerful, my Mimi:

Hi Bug,

Thanks for checking in on me yesterday... I survived, as you know, but the damage the storm caused has been estimated at a billion pounds! There are still over 75,000 without power, although things on the trains are getting back to normal:) No four hour journey for C this morning!

Hope the "desk" is behaving:)

Afternoon BUG, a breezy and cool Bay of Fundy, but lots of sun taking some of the negative from the weather. Woodstove will be on this evening, and overnight as temp to be well below the minus zero mark overnight. Tis to be expected when you look at the calendar, time falls back this weekend will be dark just after supper next week.

Haven't heard from the golfer what plans are for the New Year, some extenuating circumstances in play impacting on their ability to travel.

Enjoy your week.

From my blog: I'm glad your mom turned out to be OK. You did the right thing, bringing her home with you so that you could keep an eye on her overnight.

When was the last time she saw her doctor? He may need to add his urging to yours, for her to stay more hydrated.


It's like nothing ever happened today. She seems in good spirits and feels OK. I mentioned to her that a nurse friend of mine suggested she re-visit her doc. She did just go end of September, but that was before this incident. Stubborn mom doesn't want to go and I don't blame her. If anything out of the ordinary happens again soon, she'll have no choice. I'll make the appointment and just take her!

Morning, Bug - this is a patented flyby, as I have to get on the road to make it home today, but I did finally catch up with your train blog comment. I peeked at your spider, too. Gosh - cool!

I'm the old work horse heading for the barn, now. With luck, I'll be logging on from home tonight!

Sandi, I think the main reason I remember the meat counter in that store is that I was barely tall enough to see into it. I don't even remember what the butcher looked like. My memory is of his white apron at waist high!

I vaguely remember how Mama would point at whatever she wanted and telling him how many or how much she wanted and how she wanted it cut.

I just discovered something really cool in my flower bed: a Green Lynx spider guarding her babies!

I am delighted to see her and her brood but I am SO disappointed I didn't spot this before now. I would have loved to have watched the whole process.

I found one out there a few summers ago but the poor thing's egg sac never hatched. I felt so bad for her, as she went through all that work and would die for nothing. They only live long enough after laying to see their brood hatched and on their way.

She kept guarding that egg sac for months.

I don't remember much about it except for the meat counter. It was the old fashioned type of counter, with cuts of meat displayed behind glass. You told the butcher what you wanted and he cut off the required amount,wrapped it in butcher paper, weighed it and marked the price..
I had to smile at this section....the butcher in my supermarket, Morrison's, does exactly that. All the meat is on show behind glass - you say what you want and it is cut for you, weighed and priced! To speed up the process, there is also a fridge section nearby that has the meat already cut, weighed and priced then pre-packed for convenience. I love to choose my own and tell the butcher exactly where I would like him to cut it for me!!lol

If this storm blows through before tomorrow morning, I usually do my weekly shop on a Monday when it is quieter. When I next go up, tomorrow or Tuesday, I will take my camera and ask if I can take a photo for you.

Glad you have a lovely day...it has begun to to rain here!

Good morning. Another beautiful day here in the Lowcountry and it will be a bit warmer for the next few days. It's even expected to reach 80F again by Thursday.

Ylee, I think every region has long time grocers that have slowly disappeared. Many are forced to close by the proliferation of the larger, fancier chains or by big box stores such as Walmart and Costco. They simply can't compete.

My first recollection of a grocer was a small corner store downtown, within a few blocks of the apartment we lived in until I was almost 7 years old. It was the first floor of an old house. I've a feeling it may have been a store of some time for a long time, with the owners living upstairs, which was very common up until the middle 1900's.

I don't remember much about it except for the meat counter. It was the old fashioned type of counter, with cuts of meat displayed behind glass. You told the butcher what you wanted and he cut off the required amount,wrapped it in butcher paper, weighed it and marked the price. The entire store was probably less than a 1000 sq feet inside.

The building is still there but the first floor that contained the grocer has been a sub shop for almost 20 years now.

Hi, bug! Sorry to see you losing the Pig! :( Owensboro never had a Pig, being too far north! We did, however, had a couple of family owned local chains, which were basically wiped out by Walmart and Kroger, with their superstores. There is one market left on the west side that will cut meat on demand, and have resonable prices, too. Lewisport has one grocery store with a deli, but I rarely go there except for gas, as their prices are sky-high!

Good morning. It's sunny and cool today, which bodes well for some pottering about outside this afternoon. Right now, it's 47F/8C.

Briar, I can't believe there was a Pig that far west! It has been mainly a southern and somewhat midwest grocery chain. I do see on their website that there is a Piggly Wiggly Coffee Shop in Belfast, Ireland. It even has the Pig logo on the storefront!

SL! Oh, my goodness. Haven't seen you post but a handful of times in quite a while.

Be prepared, though. Piggly Wiggly Carolina is closing one store in 'coastal GA'. I also some articles online that state at least one Pig were owned by Belle Foods is being closed in GA.

Everyone has been mentioning Kroger. As far as I know, Charleston doesn't have a Kroger. There was one in Sumter, back when Dad lived there but the last time I was there (about 3 years ago), the store was no longer a Kroger.

Karen, I'll be by shortly. I saw it in the directory last night, just as I was shutting down.

Sandi, that store of your memory sounds wonderful. Funny how things move in circles. Those small, family owned grocers fell to the wayside as the grocery business became 'modern.' Mainly at the demand of customers wanting greater variety, fancy displays, faster service. Now, we wish for the personal treatment of the old family owned stores and dream of the quality of the goods for sale. Those businesses knew they had to provide the best available or the customer would go elsewhere and then where would they be?

I'll bet the aromas in that old store were heady. TUBS of biscuits? Oh, that must have been kid heaven! lol

I have been thinking of your Piggly store and I have come to the conclusion it is most like the store where I had my first employment, as an assistant in 'Walter Wilson, the smiling service!'

Bacon and ham hung from the rafters, to be 'unhooked' and thrown across your shoulder before slapping on the bench by the meat slicer when someone asked for 'half a pound of your best back''. Cheese was cut with a wire on the cheese board (just cheddar or Cheshire) and then weighed. Butter, (Lurpak), margarine (Stork) and lard, (no one had heard of Extra Virgin) all arrived to the shop in 30lb tubs and we had to cut off the amount the customer asked for.... from 2oz, the smallest we could sell, up to a whole pound!! Along the front of the shop counter there were metal tubs, each with a glass lid, which contained biscuits..the most popular one being the tub of 'broken' biscuits at the far end!

Oh, happy memories!

Before I moved to Georgia a year ago, The Pig and Walmart were the only 2 grocery stores in Magee, Ms.

When the Lil Kitchen was up and running, I purchased as much as I could at The Pig to support local folks. (They are employee owned, but didn't carry everything I needed) They gave me a good discount on meats, the same as the larger restaurants in Magee.

Here we have SO many different stores, many I had never shopped at even when I lived closer to Jackson.

We have ALDI's, Publix, Costco, and about 40 minutes away is a Trader Joes. I had never stepped foot in any of those until the move to Ga. of course we have Kroger, Walmart and several others. I'm in grocery shopping heaven here at all the things available.

Nobody as friendly as that dear old Pig, I had shopped there with my Granny as a small child. About 2 years ago, they completely renovated it. I hope it will be a staple of Magee for years to come.

Would you believe there was a Piggly Wiggly in the small Oregon town where I grew up in the 50s? They left Oregon in the early 60s and I haven't seen one since. I thought they were long gone, but not forgotten. Even though you are losing yours, it's nice to know there's still a Pig somewhere.

I hate it when the stores I loved in my youth disappear. Remember Montgomery Ward, the 88¢ Stores, and Sprouse Reitz (no, they were just in the West)?

Oh, I wish we had an Aldi's here. There's one in Greenwood and SMom and my aunt love it. The nearest Aldi's is two hours away!

The closest thing we have to Aldi's here in Charleston is Sav-A-Lot, which is just across the highway from our house. I shop there fairly frequently.

No, I wouldn't shop in an area I felt unsafe in, either, no matter what the store is.

Here in the UK we have eight main supermarkets chains. Waitrose is owned by a very high class, British department store, John Lewis. It is the best and probably the most expensive, too. The next in line is another British owned store, Sainbury's, followed by TESCO, which is now international, ASDA (bought by WALMART), then Morrison's who bought out Safeway, and finally the cheap stores, Netto, Liddell and ALDI.
I usually shop at Morrison's, only because it is the nearest to where I live, although, MK being a large city, we have one or two of each of the eight. I have never shopped in ALDI, as I dislike the area of the city it is positioned in - it's unsavoury!! lol

As to old, family owned, small stores, the little villages around the city have many, which I love to explore when I have time. Fish stores, butchers, bakers, general food produce, greengrocers.... It is a step back in time:-)

Hoke: [on a pay phone calling Boolie after taking Daisy to the Piggly Wiggly]

Hello, Mr. Werthan? Yeah, its me. Guess where Im at? I jus finished drivin yo mama to da store. [laughs] Oh, yeah, she flap around some, but she's all right, she in da store. Oh, Lord, she jus looked out da window an seen me on da phone... probly gonna throw a fit right there at da checkout! [pause] You sho right about that! Only took me six days. Same time it took the Lord to make the world! All right, bye now!

------------------------------------------------- -----

Hoke: Oh, Miss Daisy, yesterday, while you was out visitin, I went and ate a can of your salmon. Now, I know you said eat the left-over pork chops, but they was kinda stiff. So, I stopped at the Piggly Wiggly and got you another can. You want me just to go on and put it in the cupboard?

Karen, I know nothing stays the same but it's just incomprehendable that there'll be only a handful of Piggly Wigglies left in SC.

I wonder if the current trend of shopping all over the place is a factor in so many of the older chains closing up shop? It used to be that you did all of your shopping at one local store. The proliferation of Farmer's Markets, Walmarts, Costcos, dollar stores, Big Lots etc lure those shoppers away.

I still shopped at The Pig but only for certain things. It's not like it was when I lived downtown. The only two grocers available in that area were Piggly Wigglies. One on Broad St and one on Meeting St. Both a short bus ride from our apartment.

About 2 years before Hubby and I bought our house out in 'suburbia', a Harris Teeter opened up downtown. The Broad St. Piggly Wiggly closed a few years later, as it simply couldn't compete. It had been there since back in the 50's and was an extremely small store.

One good thing about those two Pigs downtown was that they would deliver your groceries for a small fee. I don't remember what they charged; it wasn't much. Maybe a dollar or two.

I'd take the bus, do my shopping and arrange for them to deliver. Quite often, my groceries would be waiting for me beside our door by the time I got home on the bus.

Wab, I remember the A&P. We had a number of those, Winn Dixies and Red & Whites, as well as Pigs.

Now, it's Publix, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo. There's a few Food Lions left. There is an EarthFare over towards James Island and there's a Whole Foods and a Trader Joe's in Mt. Pleasant.

The thing is, the trend in grocery stores nowadays is towards higher end shopping experiences, which means higher prices. I've a suspicion that I'll be doing more of my grocery shopping at the remaining Food Lions, Walmart, that old Red & White, the dollar stores, Big Lots, the Vegetable Bin and the farmer's markets.

I know you'd hate to see that market close but if the children (or an interested local buyer) aren't motivated to keep it going, you may lose it.

Never had a Piggly Wiggly in our area, but I sure know the name! We've lost some old grocery stores too.

We used to have Safeway, now they are all up north. The Vons/Pavilions company took Safeway over down here.

Used to have Lucky's - turned into Albertson's, and a few of them are disappearing too.

I shop at Ralph's, which I believe is called Kroegers in your next of the woods (?).

I split my grocery shopping between Costco (for some things), Sprouts (for fruits and vegetables) and Ralph's, for the things that the previous two don't carry.

From Driving Miss Daisy:

Miss Daisy: Where are you going?
Hoke: To the store, like you said.
Miss Daisy: Why didn't you turn on Highland?
Hoke: Piggly Wiggly ain't on Highland.
Miss Daisy: I know where it is! Now take Highland Avenue.
Hoke: That's 3 blocks out of the way.
Miss Daisy: Go back this minute!
Hoke: I can't turn now. I've been driving to Piggly Wiggly since it opened for business.
Miss Daisy: This isn't the way! Go back this minute!
Hoke: Miss Daisy, look. Yonder is the Piggly Wiggly. See?
Miss Daisy: Get ready to turn. Careful. There's a little girl.
Hoke: Yes, I see her.
Miss Daisy: Pull in here. Wait. Give me the keys.
Stay right here by the car. And don't tell everyone my business.

Now that The Pig is closed, there's only one store where I can buy 'soup bunches.' An old Red & White, over on Hwy 17. It's about a 5 minute drive.

It, too, is a hold out. It's not a fancy, up to date store, like Publix, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo. I've had people tell me they won't shop there, as they think it's old, tired and dirty. It's not dirty. It just looks like grocery stores all looked 40-50 years ago. There's no deli. No bakery. No fancy displays.

To those of you who have no idea what a soup bunch is, it's a package fixed up by the guys that run the produce department with a bit of cabbage, carrot, turnip, rutabaga, onion, celery and, sometimes, some kale or collards. Maybe a half a jalepeno. It's a great basis for a pot of homemade veggie soup and saves a bundle, compared to buying all those veggies individually.

It has the largest meat department I've ever seen and caters to folks with large families. You can find cuts of meat there that no one else carries. Any cut, any size package (from small to humongous) and I find great deals there.

They even put out, on a regular basis, beef shank soup bones. Not even The Pig did that anymore. You could still get them at The Pig but you had to tell the butcher you wanted some and you had to go back to pick them up, some days later.

In the past 7 or 8 years, I've been spreading my grocery shopping around, hitting each of the various chains, Walmart, the dollar stores and Big Lots about once every 2-4 weeks. Each one carries things I like, that the others don't. I keep running lists of items I want or need from each place. I just hang onto that list until I'm ready to make a stop there.

Oh so sorry to hear the Pig is being sold to slaughter. We had one here in Lewisville, a hold-out, but it too is long gone. I grew up with Piggly Wiggly. As little girls my sister and I would giggle over the name and make the kind of jokes only kids can make.
Do you think in 50 years the kids of today will be sad and say, "oh no, the last Walmart has been sold?"
Nah.

I forgot you were having Friday off work. You can enjoy it, make soup, sort the garden and do some of the of jobs you might have put on the back burner for a few weeks.

Have a good, long , weekend :-)

Friday! Friday! Friday!

Oh. Laundry. Yeah...I knew I was forgetting something.
Fine, I'll just throw in a load, finish blogging, take Roxie to the dog park, forget there is wet laundry in the tub, take a nap, remember the wet laundry when I start another load. Rinse and repeat ;)



Sandi, soup is on the list for this weekend. Tomorrow, maybe. I still need to see what I have on hand and what I need to get but I don't want to go anywhere for anything today.

GG, aren't Fridays wonderful? I'm not doing all the laundry. Just a couple of loads, starting with the sheets and bedspreads. With these cooler nights, I need to move to a heavier weight spread. I figured I might as well do it today.
