New Piggly Wiggly opens in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Piggly Wiggly had a grand opening Wednesday, and this was one of the first stores built from the ground up in 25 years.

They are a Platinum Green Shield Certified store, one of nine in the country and the only one in our area. This grocery store is located on Forest Road in Columbus, GA.

They partnered with Kaiser Warren and Heatcraft for all of the technology in their refrigeration system. This store will be run by the third generation of Milligans.

"My granddad opened his first store in the late sixties in Columbus and since then my dad and his two brothers have kind of taken over the business and now I'm part of the third generation and proud to be growing the company and we hope to continue to strive to do big things for our company," Bryan Milligan said, District Manager of Piggly Wiggly.

The store was started by Milligan's grandfather in the 60's.
