And Piggly Wiggly is part of who we are - they have been with us from the beginning,” said Kelly Timmons, CEO and founder of Charleston-based Granna’s Gourmet. “The opportunity to do anything with Piggly Wiggly is a big deal for us. When they asked us to participate in the Local Since Forever Giveaway it was easy to say yes.”
“Keeping the contest local was very important to us. The game supports local farmers and entrepreneurs as well as local tourism and education,” said Boudolf.
