Apple Foods moving into old Piggly Wiggly on Sunset Blvd.

Posted:

Here's another option for grocery shopping in Texoma. 
 
A vacant hole was left at the Westwood Village Shopping Center in Sherman when Piggly Wiggly moved out last year.

Apple Foods is about to open in the old Piggly Wiggly of Sunset Boulevard. 
Workers are putting the finishing touches on the remodel. They expect the neighborhood to welcome back a grocery store with open arms.

Assistant Manager Shawn Dosa said, "We are so excited about it, it's good for locals. I don't see a big grocery store like this around here."    

They hope to open May 12th with jobs for more than 20 people. Even hiring back several that were let go when Piggly Wiggly closed, and the store's owners say Apple Foods will be similar to an Albertson's type grocery, particularly in the kind of products they stock.
