Sadly, another grocery store in South Carolina has closed its doors this week. Read on to learn more.

Sunday, January 29, 2023, was the last day the Piggly Wiggly grocery store located at 760 US-378 in Lexington was open to the public, according to a post on the store's Facebook page.

An earlier post indicated that the store would be closing on February 5, 2023. However, the store had been running sales to liquidate store inventory since the closing announcement was originally posted on January 3, which may have led to the store's decision to close to the public earlier than originally anticipated.

Dozens of local shoppers responded to the news, expressing disappointment over the store's closing and acknowledging the great work the store's management, cashiers, and customer service team had done over the years.

The loss of this Piggly Wiggly grocery store location could also have quite an impact on the Lexington area. For example, it could result in fewer customers for businesses in the vicinity and decreased economic activity in the area. It could also affect those who depend on the store’s services, such as senior citizens and people with disabilities who may not have easy access to other stores.

The closing of this Piggly Wiggly store will certainly be a major loss for the Lexington community.
