East Athens residents, rejoice! No longer will you face the choice of the Madison County Ingles, whatever they're calling the old Piggly-Wiggly on North Avenue this week and schlepping across town to Publix or Broken Kroger.
Seriously, it's 123,000 square feet, making it the biggest Kroger in Georgia. Not only does it sell food, but also gas, clothes and even jewelry. The fuel center "excited many," reports the Athens-Banner Herald.
The shopping center also boasts a Great Clips, Posh Nails, Shane’s Rib Shack, Jersey Mike's, Pizza Hut, Panda China and AT&T. As of this time, no one has started a movement to keep out Fresh Air Barbecue's competition, but we'll keep you posted.
