Memories of the Neosho Piggly Wiggly
The title for this post is a bit misleading.
I really don't have many memories of the old Piggly Wiggly grocery store in Neosho, except that my mom took my sisters and me there (and to MFA and IGA) every Saturday while I was in elementary school.
And, of course, how could you forget that name? Piggly Wiggly, like Dog N Suds, the Corral (where we would have a milk shake and cheeseburger each week as a treat) and the bookstore on the square were the highlights of each Saturday's trip.
Piggly Wiggly stores still exist, but probably not for much longer. Today's Dallas Morning News features an article about the closing of one of the last Piggy Wigglys.
