The first is in Lexington, South Carolina, as The U.S. Sun previously reported, and will close in 10 days.

The Lexington Piggly Wiggly store took to its Facebook page on January 3 to announce that it would be closing its doors.

“We are sad to say our store will be closing on February 5th,” the post explained, along with noting a final sale on some products.

“Thank you to all our loyal customers, we will miss you!”

The second Piggly Wiggly to close will reportedly be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Piggly Wiggly Midwest informed the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development of the closing through a letter.

It explained that “this action will be permanent, and the entire store will close.”

The store is currently on 709 East Capitol Drive and did not specify an exact closing date.

However, Piggly Wiggly’s Senior Director, Bob Sullivan, did mention “employee separations” in an email.

They are supposed to begin on March 18.

Piggly Wiggly currently has just over 500 stores in America.

Additionally, a spokesperson for C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. said that Piggly Wiggly has franchise stores along with corporate locations owned by their company, per Best Life.

They told the publication in an email regarding the Milwaukee Piggly Wiggly closure that C&S doesn’t comment about “structure changes.”

“C&S continuously looks for ways to create value for our customers and accelerate our ability to deliver best-in-class services,” they wrote.

“We remain committed to satisfying our customers’ needs to the fullest and are dedicated to taking the necessary actions to achieve our overall strategic priorities that drive our long-term growth.”

Piggly Wiggly’s store closures can be added to the list of a staggering number of retailers closing locations around the country — with many calling the current situation a ‘retail apocalypse.’

Beloved retailers like Talbots, Banana Republic, and Abercrombie & Fitch have shut down some of their stores starting this past Monday.

Bed Bath & Beyond has been facing a debt crisis and is in the process of closing 150 stores in the US by the end of March.

They are rumored to be planning for a bankruptcy filing as well.

Macy’s also detailed a plan to close over 120 of its physical locations this year.

The U.S. Sun also has the story of how Barnes & Noble is making a big comeback amidst the chaos, as they will reportedly open 30 new stores soon.
