FLORENCE, S.C. – The Piggly Wiggly store on Second Loop Road in Florence is apparently closing later this month because the store’s corporate owners couldn’t come to an agreement with the building’s owner on a new lease.
Christopher Ibsen, director of corporate affairs at Piggly Wiggly Carolina Co. (PWC), said the store’s 20-year lease is expiring. Instead of renewing the lease or relocating, Ibsen said PWC decided to close the business.
