Wednesday letters: Closing grocery store a mistake

October 2, 2013 

Groceries ILLUS.jpg


— I am sad that the Piggly Wiggly at Mills Corner on U.S. 1 is closing. This store is greatly used and needed by the community. For us in the Oak Grove community the nearest grocery store is several miles away. The store is across from Barnyard Flea Market, close to a campground, school and several churches that benefit from this location. There is also the baseball complex nearby and the tennis complex. Closing this store will be a huge mistake. I hope BI-LO reconsiders closing this much-needed location.
