Lois - 18 d 12 h ago

I heard that corporate doesn't respond to questions or complaints so I don't know if it will do any good to ask this question, but I am going to give it a shot. Can you please tell me why the Piggly Wiggly store in Fairhope, Al charges a tax for 10 percent on all items and this is does not include the 9 percent state tax. They said the 10 percent is because their prices are lower. Well I have comparison shopped with Winn Dixie and Public who only charge 9 percent state taxes so Piggly Wiggly reason does not seem fair. I called this up charging and should be consider fraud. I like their store and meat products but since I found about the excess tax I may have to rethink where I shop. I understand many people complain about this excess tax. I moved here from Tuscaloosa, Al and shipped at Piggly Wiggly there all the time and was never charged an extra tax. So if you explain this tax to me I would like to have a reply.

Thank you

The managers at the Bluff Park, Alabama are the worst. The store is disgusting. The staff is very rude. I am hoping that when the new Pig is built that they over haul there management staff.

I just was in piggy wiggly In ardmore Tennessee. The manager was in a foul mood I guess. But she throw a hand basket on the ground and said she was sick of peaple not taking there baskets back. I had four sacks in my hands . She said she hated her job. Not a very good example for her employees.

Just left Piggly Wiggly in Church point Louisiana. Employees and several customers were not wearing mask. I took pictures of some without mask and told them I would report it. Said they cannot tell customers to wear a mask. Dollar tree is a cooperation and they can tell people to wear a mask or leave as with many other businesses. I would like a response to this. I will be reporting them and hopefully they will get fined. We buy all of our meat from there each week but if they do not have to wear a mask I no longer will shop there. Or any other Piggly Wiggly.

Piggly Wiggly in Apalachicola FL employees are not wearing mask. Do not shop there. A sign on the front door say mask are required. I guess it does not apply to those who work there. The local COVID-19 infection rates is through the roof. This is a very small town. If you are staying on St George Island, stop at Walmart in Crawfordsville, FL and buy your groceries. Even Walmart understands. The management of the Piggly Wiggly in Apalachicola evidently does not.

Wow!!! While on vacation we were treated terribly by a woman who would step aside in doorway with a vacuum cleaner so we could safely enter without climbing over her or the vacuum as well as consider there wasn't 6 feet total in the doorway, we messaged corporate that this woman was aggressive as she followed us the parking lot yelling at us, a very scary encounter and the corporate office FAILED to respond in anyway! Not customer friendly and not respecting 6 feet at Piggly Wiggly

I have been shopping more often at Piggly Wiggly in Saraland. The thing is that sometimes it's a little hard to get down the isles due to the stocking going on. There are usually a lot of boxes in the isles. What happened to the day when they stocked at night after the store was closed? Wish they would bring that back. Less dangerous and a whole lot easier to shop and I'm sure it would be easier for those stocking too.

Piggly Wiggly here in Boscobel Wi is a rotton store. No one wears masks, Dirty place, Snot nose kids run amok in the store, Employes are rude, Managment does nothing. I have emphysema and if i get this Virus its going to be from Piggly Wiggly here in Boscobel WI. And the corporate elites will do nothing about enforcing masks.

Piggly wiggly in Riegelwood nc has a lady who goes to work drunk and she is very rude to customers. I've tired reporting her to the store manager but he laughed in my face because he's best friends with her. How can I get help with this.

I have to tell I have been shopping at the national ave. West allis location wisconsin for many years, since it switched from sentry to the pig. But this is the second time in 2 weeks that there card readers dont function, cant even swipe it to pay for groceries. The check out girl said some other customers were having these issues also. So this has been going on for some time, it's not my card, it works fine everywhere else, so my options were to wait in another line and see if the card reads there, I dont think so, couldn't even go to the customer service counter and pay the amount there, they said they cant do that, I guess they dont want my money very bad. So I left the cart full of bagged groceries there, wont be shopping the pig anymore, I will give my money to meijer from now on.

Yall need to do something about management in the Foley Alabama store. The management team leaves alot to be desired. The store is being run into the ground. They dont give raises like they should. They run it like a elementary school. They make people lose days and money because they dont report that they come back from break. Do you hear how childish that is. You dont report that you come back from break amd they send you home. The see you come back nit they choose to make it hard in everyone because they cant quit crying about how someone cuts a box. You know how to do the job. Your doing the job but you have some one breathing down your neck tell you how to cut a box. The job is getting done. What difference does it make how it gets done. Having to report when tou go on break, when you come back from break, even though they see you come back from break. There are too many complaints about the manager and stocking manager. No one should have to work under these conditions. We know what time our breaks are we know what time they end. No elementary students work there. You fire people and hire them back. Lol why. There is a reason one gets fired. But you tuen around and hire them back. You people need to get it together. Other wise you will never be able to keep anyone at that store. All the good workers left or they leave. Leave a person alone and let them do there job. The job gets done. Get rid of the people who are not management material. Names TRA and ELAINE. THEY ARE WHY NO ONE WANTS TO STAY. Yall send some one to that store and ask anyone there and thwy will tell you you need new management there. Store manager and stock crew manager. She is the one fired and rehired. She is 74 years old. She needs to retire her butt right on out the door. Someone will get their hands on her and it wont be good. If you dont want anything bad like that to happen then you better wake up and realize. They are killing the business. They cant keep anyone. I quit because i will not be treated like a child. Ive done all this kind of work before. I dont need to be told how to do my job. I dont need to be told to report when i go on my breaks. I dont need to be told to report when i come back from break. And i damn sure dont need to lose a day of work because i didn't report that i came back from break. That is about as low as you can go. And petty. Please i beg yall to check things out. Dont let them know whats going on because they will hide stuff and lie about stuff just to keep things the way they are. I am speaking for the people who have been there for 3 or 4 years and never got a raise. Thats wrong. People get done wrong and yall let it happen. You want a good store, tou better get someone in there that knows how to run a store. Who knows how to be a manager. Im telling you. You will never be able to keep good people with people like TRA and ELAINE be children. You need adults working there. Not children. Better get them out while you can. Something has ti be done. Someone has ti stand up for the people. Im the only one who will.

Apparently the Piggly Wiggly brand as a whole doesn't respect its customers. It certainly doesn't spend time training and monitoring its employees in how to treat customers. I should say the employees only seem to show respect to customers who have a lot of money to spend, especially in the wine department. I have all but stopped shopping at the Piggly Wiggly nearest me, in Homewood, Alabama. For years I endured their sour looks, lack of response when I said "hello," and at times borderline rude behaviour. Finally I had enough, and started shopping at Publix, which is not as close, but the employee are much friendlier. Then a new Piggly Wiggly store opened in Crestline Village, a section of Mountain Brook, Alabama. It has a wonderful seafood and fresh meat section. Much better than other stores in the area. I have to drive much further to get there, but felt it was worth it to get quality seafood and meats, and to deal with friendly people. Apparently something has changed, though. Today a woman manager ignored the cashier's request for more quarters and pennies so that she could give me change for my purchases, and instead turned and walked over to join a conversation between another employee and a customer who was buying a lot of wine. My guess is that the woman buys a lot of wine from them, and therefore rates higher on the customer scale than I do. When someone finally brought the requested quarters and pennies, the cashier continued checking out other customers, totally ignoring the fact that I was still waiting for change. When I reminded her, she said she didn't remember that she owed me change, and when she found the receipt did not offer an apology for making me wait while she checked out other customers. I was patient and was not rude at any point. But it was obvious that neither the manager nor the cashier valued me as a customer. So it's back to Publix I'm headed.

I have been shopping at the #427 Columbus Ga store since it opened (>20yrs) it is poorly run since the refurbishment of the produce section and change in managers. they fail to keep stock in cold boxes and dairy area up to date, I went today to get milk (Barbers) today is 19 Feb the milk ran out yesterday ! this happens a lot ! I told the Manager (or asst mgr) he said OK, I went back 3 hours later and it was still there. the store is dirty, freezers are to warm (I can see the thermometer) people not very helpful and they don't seem to care about the customers. I went to another store #444 on Woodruff Farms Rd that is about 4 yrs old. Its a giant store, super clean no out dated stuff, very friendly staff (also very clean cut and looking good ) this will be my new store, just a great store.

The Gordon,Ga Piggly Wiggly is absolutely disgusting. The meat,ice cream cases are not working most of the time but they still sell the product thawed and refrozen. They sell ground beef 95% fat they don't have ground chuck .The parking lot is like a trash dump baby diapers,chicken bones and papers. The manager walks around and smiles and does nothing. The cashiers are another story One boy wears a stocking cap summer and winter and looks as though he just got out of bed . They keep their phones next to register and don't hesitate to pick it up and text while waiting on customer. Only problem this is the only grocery store in the county and the prices are way higher than other stores.

I come to my 2nd home in Graceville Florida and every time I visit this store most of the food is expired and the meat smells spoiled. I do not have anything positive to say about this store. Poor quality of food.
