Several Midlands Piggly Wiggly stores soon will become Bi-Lo locations.

Bi-Lo announced Thursday that it’s buying 22 Piggly Wiggly stores in South Carolina and Georgia. Local stores included are 4711 Forest Drive in Columbia, 760 U.S. Highway 378 and 4360 Augusta Road in Lexington, as well as stores in Prosperity, Bamberg and St. Matthews.

All employees at the existing Piggly Wiggly stores will be offered similar positions with Bi-Lo as part of the sale agreement. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bi-Lo Holdings President and CEO Randall Onstead said, “We look forward to welcoming these new associates to the Bi-Lo Holdings family and to building on the strength of these stores.”

The store names are expected to officially change later this year.
