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.
