C&S Wholesale Grocers Inc. will be opening a new Piggly Wiggly supermarket in Watertown, New York. GU Markets LLC, an affiliate of C&S Wholesale Grocers, will operate this store.
The store will be located at 1330 Washington St. The official grand opening event will be held on March 3, where store leadership will be providing a special donation to the Northern New York Community Foundation.
“We are very excited to bring this beloved brand to New York. Piggly Wiggly has been an icon in the supermarket industry since its first store opening in the 1900s,” said Bob Palmer, CEO of C&S Wholesale Grocers.
“When we purchased the 12 stores that became available due to the Tops Markets merger with Price Chopper/Market 32, we immediately knew that this location was the right opportunity to enter the Northeast market and showcase why this is a supermarket that creates braggingly happy customers,” he said.
Building on its more than 100-year history in the grocery business, Piggly Wiggly has continued to grow its presence with stores throughout the Midwest, South and Northeast. C&S Wholesale Grocers Inc. operates corporate stores and services independent franchisees under a chain-style model.
The grocery store offers the selection and assortment of a national chain, with the service and local customization of a community-based retailer. Each store contains specialized assortments to meet local shoppers’ needs.
Piggly Wiggly says that the company’s self-service grocery shopping revolutionized the grocery industry and that many of the conveniences and services that American shoppers enjoy were introduced first by Piggly Wiggly.

Founded in 1918 as a supplier to independent grocery stores, C&S now services customers of all sizes, supplying more than 7,500 independent supermarkets, chain stores, military bases and institutions with over 100,000 different products.
