Letters: Piglet Anticipation
Open Arms
July 26, 2016

O
riental is ready for The Piglet’s grand opening, July 27. Billy Flockhart, who owns and runs the Piggly Wiggly in Grantsboro has worked for 6 months to open a Pig in Oriental, in the building the Walmart EXpress vacated in January. That closing, on the heels of the Town-n-Country closing had left Oriental without a supermarket for the first time in most people’s memories. A few weeks ago, in the Croakerfest Parade, the Pig’s mascot, Mr. Pig got a lot of applause and cheering from residents looking forward to the store opening. Reader Dianne Piland sent in some photos to underscore that.

Dear TownDock:

I feel just like my granddaughter, “Lala” Lindsay Anne, did when she saw the Pig in our parade.

Lala greets the pig..

Pig.
A welcome.
