Piggly Wiggly independent store owner is opening two new stores in South Carolina, US.

An independent Piggly Wiggly Store owner, in conjunction with and with the support of C&S Wholesale Grocers, announced that they are purchasing two former BI-LO stores in South Carolina.

Piggly Wiggly stores in South Carolina and Southeast Georgia, which are independently owned and operated, are supported and supplied by C&S Wholesale Grocers. C&S Wholesale Grocers, the owner of the Piggly Wiggly brand, is looking forward to extending the Piggly Wiggly footprint.

C&S Wholesale Grocers VP of marketing and merchandising in the Southeast John Owens said: “Our Independent Owners are excited to grow their existing store count and expand the Piggly Wiggly brand in the Southeast."

Lynn and Cindy Willard, current owners of nine Piggly Wiggly locations in South Carolina, have purchased the BI-LO stores at 9616 Highway 78, Ladson, S.C., and 208 E. McIntyre Street, Mullins, S.C.

The transactions were closed in mid-May and were subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Upon completion of the transaction, the acquired stores were rebranded under the Piggly Wiggly banner name.

The Grand Opening celebrations are scheduled at 10:00 a.m. ET on June 6, 2018. With the additional stores converting to the Piggly Wiggly banner, C&S Wholesale Grocers now services 51 Piggly Wiggly locations in South Carolina and Southeast Georgia.
