Well, another day, another Pig. I wasn't even aware there was a place called Red Bank in the Midlands until I started this blog, but there's actually a good bit of commercial activity there near the I-20 intersection. Although now there's a little less..

As commenter Homer mentions, with the closing of this store, the only footprints the chain has left in the area are the North Main Street & Devine Street stores, and with the adding of this closing, I will have, if I am counting correctly, 19 closings for Piggly Wiggly. How have the mighty fallen.

UPDATE 12 January 2018: Add store number as found by commenter Andrew to post title.

  1. It's looking like the grocery business has two successful models... Nice with an over the top customer experience (Publix, Lowes Foods) at a premium price - or cheap (Walmart, Aldi). Piggly Wiggly delivered a Walmart experience with Publix prices.

  2. This intersection is strange. There was a Winn Dixie Marketplace across Highway 6 that closed late 90's or early 2000's, and the space sat empty for 10 - 12 years! Government offices now occupy the space.

    The Piggly Wiggly felt cheap and dirty, almost like they built it as cheap and fast as possible. Heath is correct above - if your store feels low rent then have low prices. This place didn't. The prices were comparable to Publix/Food Lion and selection was bad. We only went there for convenience, nothing more.

    Oddly enough, they tried to seem more upscale by installing a 'Growler Station' and the shopping center itself has improved over the years. A bank was built in the parking lot mid-2000's and a Dunkin' Donuts moved into a space down from the store.
