Our second stop in downtown Summerville is just south of yesterday's Piggly Wiggly. This roughly 14,000 square foot building was almost definitely previously a grocery store, although I'm not sure what. The antique store that takes up the left half of this building has most of their sales floor actually in what I assume was the grocery store's backroom, although I couldn't get a good picture really showing it. But there's pretty clear separate rooms, such as what might be breakrooms, and even what appears to be a walk-in cooler that's been repurposed for antiques. A thought: since yesterday's Piggly Wiggly was so much like a Food Lion, was that built as a Food Lion while the Piggly Wiggly was originally here? This building looks a fair amount like a supermarket of the age Mr. K's Piggly Wiggly would've been, and they could've moved into a closed Food Lion at some point thereafter. Anyway, our next stop is to the south of town at another former grocery store here tomorrow!
