Piggly Wiggly / Red & White / Ace Hardware / Cornerstone Construction / Filling Place Worship Center / Life Church International / KC Carolina Bingo / All South, 1515 Frink Street: 2000s (etc)   7 comments

Posted at 10:42 pm in business,stores,venue

This LoopNet listing says that this building on the South side of Frink Street west of 12th was originally a grocery, and that is especially clear in side views. I don't know what chain it was, but the LoopNet statement that it was built in 1995 looks wrong to me -- I would put it in the 1960s.

Since then it has apparently been a lot of things: Two different churches, a construction company, a bingo parlor and a cellphone store. It is currently vacant, but as you can see, there is a building permit in the door, so presumably it will soon undergo yet another incarnation.

UPDATE 6 July 2011: Changed the post title from "Grocery" to "Piggly Wiggly" based on the comments. Also added "Ace Hardware" to the list of tenants.

UPATE 5 June 2014: Added Red & White to the post title based on the comments.

  1. It was an Ace Hardware until around 2000 and then became a thrift store.

    I was told it was originally a Piggly Wiggly.

  5. Agreed, this was the local Piggly Wiggly when I lived a few blocks from here in the early 70's. --It still was when I came back to visit in the mid 70's, and then in the 90's it was the abov mentioned hardware store.

  6. This was definitely a Piggly Wiggly when I was a kid (late 70's through the 80's.) Then right after the Pig closed, it briefly became a "Red & White" grocery store, if you want to add that to the list. Don't recall exactly when that happened, though.
