Piggly Wiggly / Ace Hardware / Cornerstone Construction / Filling Place Worship Center / Life Church International / KC Carolina Bingo / All South, 1515 Frink Street: 2000s (etc)   5 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.

  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.
