When asked why sustainable seafood is important to them, Gene’s son, David, said, “I have known my shrimper since elementary school.” This is what sustainable seafood looks like – seafood harvested by and for the people of the community, using the ecological bounty of the ocean to feed neighbors and keeping product ultra-local.” David went on to say, “Providing fresh seafood is important to us for many reasons, one being we love to support our local friends in the fishing industry. As a small operation, we are able to handpick exactly what we want to sell since we are not mandated by any corporate structure. That enables us to get fresh fish and shrimp daily.”
It is not easy being a family-owned grocery store in today’s world of consumerism. Now there are three supermarkets in a mile radius of Piggly Wiggly, all appealing to locals and tourists alike. This is why when you’re in Hilton Head, we encourage you to swing by the Piggly Wiggly in Coligny Plaza and not just sample their selection of sustainable seafood, but stock up. Fill your freezer with local shrimp and fish while also supporting a business that weathers storms with their community, stays true to their values and puts sustainability before their bottom line.
Welcome to the Good Catch family, Hilton Head Piggly Wiggly!
