NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - "I'm 75% sure we're in good shape right now," Summey said.
The people who live in that part of town only have small markets to shop from, and the closest full-service grocery store is nearly two miles away.
With the hope that a Piggly Wiggly could be coming the people who need it most are hopeful.
"It's gonna be real good for everybody around here," a man who lives close to the site said.
"This is gonna be good for the area and I think it's gonna be good for Piggly Wiggly as well," Summey said.
Mayor Summey said if everything goes as planned there could be construction starting by the end of the year and a new grocery store up in 2018.
