About Piggly Wiggly, History and Headquarters Information

History

Piggly Wiggly was founded in the year 1916. The company has been operational for almost 103 years now. The founder of the company was Clarence Saunders. The company was the first true self-service grocery store in the USA. The company had secured the self-service format and issued franchises to hundreds of grocery retailers for the operation of its stores as well. In this self-service format, the customers used to enter the store through a turnstile and chose merchandise while walking through the store’s four aisles of products categories. The company was at its peak success during the year 1932, when it operated more than 2,600 stores along with annual sales of $180 million too.

The company founder had lost control of Piggly Wiggly in the year 1922 after he lost most of his assets in a lousy stock deal. The founder had attempted a squeeze on the substantial short interest in the company stock, by running the share price up from $40 to $120 and profiting by almost millions on paper. The Stock Exchange Governors responded by deciding that a corner had been established in the company and had removed the stock from the Board, thereby eventually forcing the company founder to turn over his assets to the banks that had financed his leveraged position. Saunders reputedly lost almost nine million dollars in the attempted fraud. The company was then divided into various strategic units and sold to regional grocery chains as well. In the year 1935, all the 179 Canadian Piggly Wiggly shops were also sold to Canada Safeway, which had later merged with Sobeys in the year 2013. After losing control of the company, the company founder had no further association with the entity, although he remained interested in the concept of automated shopping though - with which he experimented initially with the Keedoozle store until his passing away in the year 1953. The company was the first provide services like checkout stands, price mark every item in the store and also provide shopping carts for customers as well. The company continued to prosper as a franchiser for hundreds of independently-owned grocery stores that were licensed to do business under the Piggly Wiggly name as well. The company was acquired by Malone & Hyde in the year 1982. Malone & Hyde was later then acquired by Fleming Companies in the year 1988. Fleming had filed for bankruptcy in the year 2003, and C&S Wholesale Grocers had finally taken over most of the business, including Piggly Wiggly as well. The headquarters of the company is based in 176 Croghan Spur 400. The name of the place is Charleston, while the name of the state is South Carolina, USA. The pin code of the area is 29407.

    I live in Columbus, GA. The store location is 1345 13th street, Columbus GA 31901, and the incident took place on 4/8/2020 at or around 6 pm. On Wednesday, I went into the store, I grabbed a cart and proceeded to the juice aisle, where I observed two male employees and a female employee detaining a Black female shopper. At the time, I had no idea what was going on because I had my headphones in my ears with my music playing. However, I did mute my headphone once I saw the male store manager tell the woman to empty her bag, which she did pull out what appeared to be food items from the store. The female shoplifter became very combative, and I did tell her to calm down, you have been caught stealing. Again, I told her you are caught; stop resisting. I also stated that they should go and get a law enforcement officer because this lady is combative. The female produce worker (Tina Jacobs) asked me if I was with the female shoplifter, to which I stated no.
    After the employees were tussling with the female shopper lifter, the female tried to get away, and the male manager than used my cart to block the lady. The shoplifter, three male employees, and the female employee had the shoplifter in the stock room area. I observed one male employee leave the area standing there as the tussling continued in the stockroom area. One of the male employees suggested to the male manager to “take it easy” regarding his handling of the female shoplifter. I was in observation mode only. The employee that stated the manager should take it easy step out of the stock room and hand the door ajar. I said to him, man, that is crazy, and I was observing. He had a very concern look on his face, and I stated again, man. I lean to look at the scuffle, and the male employee standing to the left side of me said, go, and pointed me in the direction of the stock room. I did observe all three employees detaining the female. The Female employee shouted, I should get out of there, and I stated no problem. The male manager recognized me as being a regular customer and said: “you can stay and observe.” I did. I thought I was going to be a witness against the female shoplifter. The female shoplifter had gotten away and fled to the back of the store where the employees usually cut meat.
    As I stood with the male employee, Tina Jacob stated again, screaming in my face, “are you with her, and I was going to get arrested?” I said to Tina Jacobs that she was a “dam lie, and she needs to know the law.” The male manager stated to Tina Jacobs that “I was not with that lady, and this lady is the shopper who wears the reflector clothing at night after running.”
    As I was checking out my grocery items, I was asked by the cashier, “was I alright?” to which I replied, “yes, and I would like corporate’s number, and I wanted to speak to the manager. I observed Tina Jacobs walked back and forth in a pacing motion. I saw her go into the office with the mirror behind the customer service counter. She then approached me, “stating here is corporate’s number.” I never received an apology from this woman based on her accusations. While standing at the end of the register, a person who does not want to be on the record or her name known, stated: “she always get complaints about the same thing” and “everyone states she doesn’t know how to speak to customers… but nothing ever happens to her.”
    Well, the issue I have is why did she accuse me of being with the shoplifter? I frequently shop at this location, and at no time do I ever come into the store with someone. The three individuals observed the shoplifter way before I got there. There was no logical reason for her to ask me that question several times. Let me be clear; I do not know that woman. No, I do not know the female shoplifter. The only thing the shoplifter and myself have in common is we are both African American and female.
    I am troubled concerning the accounts that took place on 4/8/2020 at your Piggly Wiggly 1345 13th Street location. The fact remains that disciplinary measures should be done and employees should take an extensive class on interpersonal relations of diversity. I am appalled by her accusations and her lack of ethics to apologize because she falsely accused me of being complicit with a shoplifter. I am a well-educated woman. I pride myself on being an upstanding citizen, with the accolades to support them. I have my BS degree and graduated summa cum Claude, I have my MPAJ degree, and will graduate in May of 2020 with my M.E.D all from Columbus State University. I have worked with several established law organizations, and I was thoroughly disgusted by Tina Jacobs’ (she works in the produce section) actions.

    I am a frequent customer Piggly Wiggly in Plymouth, WI – recently I noticed the added lighting at candy displays at the check out counters. I know this is a stretch but I am wondering if you would share where these lights were purchased? I own 2 small retail stores and have been looking for small lights as such for my displays – I haven’t had much luck so I am hoping you are able to point me in the direction in which you purchased these lights for the Piggly Wiggly Stores
