And this little Piggly Wiggly will close. The Piggly Wiggly on West End in Nashville is looking like it will become another "mixed-use development". A grocery store has filled that spot for the last 70 years.
H.G. Hill Properties (remember when they were one of the big grocery chains here?) owns the property and has held it since 1923. The building has been there since the 1950s and has been several small markets including Apple Market and Piggly Wiggly.
The realty group has started some studies with Metro to see if the property could be turned into a multi-use property that could include, according to The Nashville Post, "36 studio units, 164 one-bedroom residences, 83 two-bedroom units, 18 three-bedroom residences, a swimming pool and 6,000 square feet of retail space."
Everything is in its earliest stages and no other details are being released, but it looks like the Piggly Wiggly's days are numbered. I have mixed feelings because it has the nostalgia of old Nashville. But I also never stepped foot in there because it seems more like a grocery store museum.
Those nearby probably like having access to groceries close to where they live. But maybe the retail space will include another place to get groceries.
