Filed under: Circle the Wagons, Economy, South Carolina — NotforHire @ 11:03 am

Just so you know where your money goes when you shop for groceries I have compiled the following list:

Piggly Wiggly Carolina Co., corp. offices in North Charleston, SC, privately held, employee owned.

Bi-Lo, corp. offices in Mauldin, SC, privately held LLC.

Harris-Teeter, corp. offices in Matthews, NC, privately held.

Food Lion, corporate offices in Brussels, Belgium, owned by the Delhaize Group.

Publix, corp. offices in Lakeland Florida, publicly traded, employee owned.

Earthfare, corp. offices in Asheville, NC, privately held.

Costco, corporate offices in Issaquah, WA, publicy traded.

WalMart, offices in Bentonville, AK, publicly traded.

Whole Foods Market, Corp. offices in Austin, TX, publicly traded.

Now you know where your money goes when you’re stocking your larder. If I missed a store you shop at in your town please let me know and I will update the list.

  1. Thank you. Piggly Wiggly Carolina Co. is very proud to be 100% employee-owned and the largest employee owned company in South Carolina! Very unique for any grocery store.
