Bi-Lo, 760 US-378: Mid January 2020   3 comments

Posted at 10:44 pm in closing








Well, this may be the final Bi-Lo closing, unless I go farther afield. This store on US-378 started out as a Piggly Wiggly more than twenty years ago, and now with the sale of Bi-Lo has come full circle. It's nice to see a new Pig open, as that chain has been having its own problems. It seems that the crew who wanted to stay on were able to, which is nice. ColaDaily has the story.

  1. The only other Bi-Lo that hasn't been featured here is one at 2349 Augusta Road in West Columbia. Rashaad noted in Have Your Say last Christmas that it is to become a KJ's Market IGA but I haven't been out that way to see where the process stands.

    I know Chapin stuff doesn't feature here much but the only other Bi-Lo on my radar is the one in Chapin that became a Lowe's Foods around the the same time the one in the Village at Sandhill did. That one started out as a Winn Dixie but then became Bi-Lo ca. 2005 when Winn Dixie pulled out of the Carolinas as when they filed for bankruptcy during that time.

    Those are the only other 2 I'm aware of (unless ted finds any in the Grand Strand area (idk of any but I do know stuff from that area does feature here periodically)).

  2. The Augusta Road BI LO is now open as a KJ's Market. Prices are higher than the previous BI LO and they are in the process of ripping out the Pharmacy that previously existed. Did I mention prices are HIGHER?

  3. During this site's 'downtime' I stumbled upon a Post & Courier article (and subsequently confirmed it via the FB page) that the Piggly Wiggly #312 that moved in here at 760 US 378 will be sadly closing on February 5, 2023 :(.

    The article cited isues with inflation, supply chain woes, decline in the average transaction and inventory issues as contributing factors.

    I hate to see it go as it has become one of my favorite grocery shopping options in the last couple of years but I remember hearing a school of thought that "all things that have a beginning must also have an ending (except the kingdom of God)."
