PINE LEVEL, AL (WSFA) -

Pine Level and Autauga County leaders broke ground Tuesday on a new Piggly Wiggly grocery store that will be located off Highway 31 North a few miles from Interstate 65.

The store will be 28,000 square feet and will include a deli and gas pumps on the property.

On the surface, this may not sound like a big deal to many, but it most certainly is when you factor in the equation that area residents must drive a pretty good distance to buy groceries. For Jettie Rawls, grocery shopping will become much more convenient. 

"We're so happy. We've been traveling 8 miles," Rawls said. "We'll be able to get milk, bread and eggs."

It took 7 years to make the store a reality.

"A lot of pieces to the puzzle. It took years to get the sewer laid, a 7-year project with the sewer," said Autauga County Commission Chairman Jay Thompson.

"The economy has finally bounced back to the level it was prior 2007," said Keith Holley of Holley Properties who developed the 4.8 acre property. Company leaders say they plan to hire anywhere from 50 to 60 people with a weekly payroll of $23,000.

"I, for one, am very proud to see this project come," said Kyle Glover, the co-chair of the economic committee.

The Piggly Wiggly is a $3 million investment by developers Holly Properties, LLC. It's expected to open by December 1.
