The Face of Local Groceries

Piedmont Grocery Company


As some grocery chains become bigger and more high-tech, Piedmont Grocery remains an old-fashioned neighborhood market in the best sense of the word. “As everything changes around us, we are a constant,” says Amy Pence, Piedmont Grocery’s vice president. “It’s the people who work here, frankly,” Pence says. “Many of our checkers have been with us for over 20 years.” She says that customers have literally grown up in her grocery aisles. “We’re a big city store with a small-town feel,” she says. “You just don’t get that any more.”
