Holly Famulari can’t wait to come to work every day.
The cake “wizard” (decorator) at the new Lowes Foods supermarket dances and waves a wand in front of the store’s cake-making corner when the music begins to play for a game of cake walk.
“You work, but you have so much fun doing it,” said Famulari, who once worked at rival Harris Teeter as a cake decorator.
The 50,000-square-foot grocery store opens at 10 a.m. Wednesday on Dorchester Road in Summerville, directly across from no-frills grocer Aldi. It’s the first store in the Charleston market for the North Carolina-based supermarket.
Another is planned for Mount Pleasant and there’s talk of two others in the works for the Charleston region as part of the 77-store chain across the Carolinas.
“It’s not a grocery store,” company spokeswoman Kelly Davis said. “It’s an experience.”
