Piggly Wiggly's historic brand is no longer



The Piggly Wiggly shopping center on North Columbia Street, which currently houses Citi Trends and Aaron’s, was built in the 1970s, said Dale Allen, market manager for the grocery store location.

“The old building was knocked down and rebuilt, and that was 19 years ago; I’ve been here since day one at this location,” Allen said. “There used to be a Piggly Wiggly in the Town and Country Shopping Center where Roses is now. That location moved to its current South Wayne Street location in the early 1980s.”

Belle Foods is a family-owned neighborhood grocer with 57 stores in four southern states, originated by the father-son team of Bill and Jeff White. According to Belle Foods website, the company prides itself in providing great quality food, excellent customer service, and affordable prices in a clean, family-friendly environment. 

“I want to see a lower price structure, which is what we’re working on now. We will still have the same people working here under a different name,” Allen said. “I’m excited for this transition, and we’re still the last ones still cutting fresh meat; Belle Foods will continue that tradition.”
