MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Piggly Wiggly will soon open in a former Montgomery Winn-Dixie store.

The announcement was made at a Dalraida community meeting at the Dalraida United Methodist Church. Mike Hryniw, who managed the Winn-Dixie for the last 11 months it was open, will manage the new Piggly Wiggly. 

"A lot of work ahead of us, but we're excited to be here," Hryniw said. 

The store will offer fresh produce, meat cut in house, a bakery, deli, hot bar, and great prices, Hryniw said. He also said they are looking into getting a pharmacy.

"That's one thing that Piggly Wiggly doesn't offer, but as an independent operator, we can do what we want to offer the services, so that could be a possibility in the near future also," he said. 

Hryniw said they will hire many of the same people who worked at Winn-Dixie before it closed. 

The store is located at Atlanta Highway and Dalraida Road. A soft opening is scheduled for May 18, with a grand opening to follow. Three trailers of groceries were delivered Tuesday and will start flowing onto shelves Wednesday. 

In March, Southeastern Grocers, the parents company of Winn-Dixie, announced that location and dozens of other "under performing stores" were closing. The Winn-Dixie in Dalraida closed two weeks ago.
