Edisto Beach Piggly Wiggly Closing November 2

Edisto Beach Piggly Wiggly shoppers are noticing that the shelves are getting emptier by the minute. That’s because the upcoming switchover that will take the store and turn it into a Bi-Lo is coming up faster than anyone imagined.

The current store will close Nov. 2 and will reopen as the Bi-Lo on Nov. 8. Anyone who needs groceries can head to the Food Lion in Ravenel or Piggly Wiggly in Hollywood, or go a little further and hit up the variety of options in Charleston.

There are a lot of rumors going around about what the new store will be like. Some say the deli will be overhauled. Others say the floors and light fixtures will be updated. Seeing as Bi-Lo will only be leasing the building, there won’t be too many constructional changes to the overall look of the place. Time will only tell in terms of what it will really be like. Thankfully the local workforce will remain employed after the switch is made.

Currently, many products at the Piggly Wiggly are discounted. Piggly Wiggly brand items are 30% off while deli items are 40% off. Be sure to use any Greenbax accumulated on your Piggly Wiggly card so they don’t go to waste. Greenbax can be used to for free or discounted items or can be put toward a gift card.

Note to readers: If you’re visiting the area and need groceries, you’re better off stopping in Charleston, Hollywood, or Ravenel first. The shelves are looking pretty bare at the Pig and the produce section is nearly wiped out.

Also, the store is closing at 8 p.m. now until it closes on Nov. 2, so be sure to make note of the change. Hours for the Bi-Lo are not yet available.

Should you find yourself on Edisto in dire need of some kind of groceries and don’t want to leave the island, check out the Horizon gas station on Palmetto Blvd or on the island off Highway 174 as well as the Edistonian General Store, all of which offer some basic groceries.

If you want to say goodbye to the Piggly Wiggly, come out to the parking lot at 2:30 this Saturday as “The Beach Notes” sing a farewell tune to honor the grocery store.

  1. It would be great if someone would take a camcorder and put this farewell on Saturday up on YouTube or in the blog.

  2. “This is a tale about an unprejudiced heart, and how it changed our valley forever. There was a time not so long ago when pigs were afforded no respect, except by other pigs; they lived their whole lives in a cruel and sunless world. In those days pigs believed that the sooner they grew large and fat, the sooner they’d be taken into Pig Paradise, a place so wonderful that no pig had ever thought to come back.”  “Baa ram ewe”, Mr Pig, you will live on in the memories of the many who visited you daily or weekly~

    To the employees, hang in there!

  3. The pig was part of the experience for the tourist like myself, yes it cost more, yes the selection was not as good as the pig in Hollywood but none the less it was a part of our trip. I likes the looks the buckeyes gave me as I pulled up in my big Dodge 3500 and it belching diesel exhaust. The pig is where my daughter was introduced to Blenheim Ginger Ale, Palmetto Cheese and other Carolina favorites. Oh well I am sure Buy Lo will work but a stop in Hollywood with my 39 foot camper will be part of the routine now.

  4. I sure will miss “The Pig” at Edisto. It has been such an institution on Existing
    BiLo has some big shoes to fill!

  5. <sigh>  The Pig is gone.  I spent my early years as a tourist muddling my way around the shop. That was replaced after I took ownership of the pig loyalty card and became disgusted as the tourists bought all of my stuff!  LOL.  Let’s see how Bi-Lo will take.
