C&S Converts Stores to Piggly Wiggly

Five Southern Family Markets stores in Georgia reopened yesterday flying the Piggly Wiggly banner, said C&S Wholesale Grocers, which owns and operates the stores.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Five Southern Family Markets stores in Georgia reopened yesterday flying the Piggly Wiggly banner, said C&S Wholesale Grocers here, which owns and operates the stores. The conversions will accompany a new focus on fresh food and customer service, the company said in a statement. C&S launched the Southern Family banner after acquiring 104 stores in the Southeast from Bi-Lo Bruno’s in 2005. Late that year, 12 former FoodMax stores in the chain were converted to Piggly Wiggly, though some of those stores have since closed. C&S operates 42 stores — including the new Piggly Wiggly locations — in the Southern Family chain, as well as 10 liquor stores, the company said.
