Forget the Pig; the Edisto Beach Bi-Lo is here.
The Bi-Lo opened back in November and was soon packed with hungry and curious locals and visitors. To the untrained eye, the store looks very much the way it did when it was the Piggly Wiggly with a few exceptions: Theres a fresh coat of paint, many of the odds and ends stacked high on up on shelves are gone, and things look a lot more organized.
Of course the familiar signage with the smiling pig face upon them are all gone and the Bi-Los green and white signature colors are everywhere, but thats really the most noticeable part of the buyout.
Those of you who loved Mrs. Macks fried chicken served up exclusively at The Pig need not worry as the special recipe is still coating what is now known as Lip Lickin Chicken. So rest assured that the deli is still there and offering up the same great food locals and vacationers love.
One of the best things about the switch is that the Bi-Lo offers shoppers wheeled baskets that can be rolled around for small shopping experiences. As anyone who has loaded up a shopping basket with multiple two-liter bottles and stood in line during peak tourist time can tell you a wheeled basket is nothing short of amazing. Naturally, shopping carts are still available for those making bigger purchases.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of the Bi-Lo is that fuel perks are now offered to shoppers. That means that anyone with a loyalty card can stock up on points and then received discounts off of gas at the Horizon station located right across the parking lot.
The store is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
