CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Four West Virginia Foodland stores have recently made the franchise switch to Piggly Wiggly, the most recent being the “Bigley Piggly Wiggly” at 10 Spring St., near Bigley Avenue, in Charleston.

The store made the news official at a grand re-opening celebration earlier this month, joining the Kanawha City, Sissonville and Eleanor Piggly Wigglys, which confirmed their jumps to the brand in July 2016.

But the last thing Bigley Piggly Wiggly owner Jeff Joseph wants you to think is that the change means the locations are ditching their local emphasis and storied histories.
