The Pig continues to nudge its way back into the Charleston region.

The former Price Wise Foods supermarket, a Piggly Wiggly affiliate, at 1270 Yeamans Hall Road in Hanahan is now a Piggly Wiggly.

The ownership didn't change. Lynn Willard of Mount Pleasant owned the Price Wise outlet and converted it to The Pig brand to bring it in line with his other 10 stores in eastern South Carolina, according to Joe Pinto of C&S Wholesale Grocers, which owns the Piggly Wiggly franchise.

A small remodeling job is planned along with a grand opening down the road.

Willard recently purchased two former Bi-Lo stores in Ladson and Mullins. They are now Piggly Wiggly supermarkets.

Piggly Wiggly now has seven stores in the Greater Charleston region, and all of the supermarkets are independently owned and operated.
