It does not happen at every Sister Bay Plan Commission meeting, so the applause at the end of the presentation detailing the expansion efforts of the village’s Piggly Wiggly was all store manager Jay Kita needed to hear. Groundbreaking for the expanded store is expected to begin on October 22nd. Until the following spring, Piggly Wiggly will grow nearly 10,000 square feet, giving shoppers a little extra elbow room in the aisles and grocery store departments more space for their items. Kita says the community is excited to see it finally happen.
Kita expects it will stay mostly open during the construction process, but there may be some days where it does have to shut down to finish different projects. The hope is the newly expanded Piggly Wiggly will be finished by May 1st.
