Business is slow in alot of places, maybe because of the new store on east cedar, their parking lot is packed. People have to save money and piggly is high.

The Price Less store carries the same store brand as Piggly and many of the same other brands and items too. The prices at Piggly are definitely higher than other stores. But I'd hate to see Piggly in trouble. I like the store. You can get personal service there. They'll order special items, etc. Plus Piggly is very convenient for people who live nearby or who drive 31W back and forth to work.

I would expect to see the same products , they are both owned by Houchins.
I like Piggly Wiggly and location . Maybe they will use it for a tax write off.

What I don't understand is why Houchen's would bring in a new store to compete with one of their own stores. Maybe it's just a revamping of the pitiful Sav-a-Lot.

Everyone knows that crap(Wal-Mart) is king around here, though. For what reason I don't know. I can't wait until we get a real grocery here, like Kroger or Publix.

I think the Pig will survive IGA, just as they survived Wal-Mart, Food Lion and Sav-A-Lot. Just for the record, Houchens does NOT own Piggly Wiggly. I realize they have their hands in a lot of businesses, and both stores carry a lot of the same products, but Piggly Wiggly stores are all independently owned and operated.

Krogers and Publix kind of remind me of Coors beer. When you could not buy Coors except in a few states people would travel and bring it back by the cases. When it got to KY it was no longer a big deal. I really don't know what Kroger has that our new store doesn't. I am happy with our new store! and I will also continue to support the Pig.

No Houchens doesn't own the Franklin Piggly Wiggly. It is independently owned by 2 men. I don't know about other Piggly Wiggly's but Houchens DOESN'T own the one in Franklin.

I find this hilarious. You would think people would grow the Fuck and and a grow a pair and talk shit to their faces. Yea won't happen in Franklin. We have nothing else better to do than draw checks and bum from the government, wow you score with the 90% like everyone else. Devote your time to a job, cook clean do something Hell. But let me just give you a little insight on me since you know me all to well. I have an ass, thick legs and chunky cheeks but yet I'm on drugs? I make $7.75 at priceless but yet I'm on drugs? I can't even afford food moreless something useless. My rent is $575 you do the math at 40 hours per week. I have a child I don't get food stamps like half of America, so Stfu and go on somewhere, say it to my face like a big girl or boy you should be, thank youuuuuuu!!!!!
