The local grocery chains will remain open at normal business hours, from 6 a.m. to midnight.
The two local Piggly Wiggly stores underwent a name change last year when they were bought out by Belle Foods. The company filed for Chapter 11 business reorganization in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in early July.
HAC Inc currently operates under five banners, including Homeland, United Supermarkets, Country Mart, Super Save and Super Plaza. The company is employee-owned and with the new locations will add 500 new team members. With the addition of the 11 stores, HAC Inc will operate 87 stores throughout Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Georgia and Alabama.
“I personally am very excited and enthused about the potential of these stores,” said HAC Inc. CEO Darryl Fitzgerald via press release. “The Georgia and Alabama stores are full of dedicated, long-term associates who only want to better serve their customers. We plan to fill these stores up and give this team the tools they need to better serve their customers.”
