Prattville, AL., May 16, 2017— As part of the continuing efforts to drive economic development and investment in Autauga County, the Economic Development Committee of the Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce and local elected officials held a groundbreaking today for a new Piggly Wiggly, located at 2003 Highway 31 North, which will serve the residents in Pine Level and Marbury.
 
Holley Properties, LLC is the developer of this Piggly Wiggly franchise and their $3 million investment will result in a 28,000-square foot “fresh” concept grocery store, complete with gas pumps. They also have plans to hire approximately 50 employees, including four managers. Keith and Paula Holley pride themselves as family owned and operated with all three of their children involved in their other stores, creating a positive workplace. Completion date is December 2017.
 
“We celebrate with the citizens of Pine Level on a development that has been seven years in the making,” stated Jay Thompson, Autauga County Commission Chair. “Investment in Autauga County is important to the future of our communities and the ability to attract and retain citizens and industrial prospects. This full-service grocery store will be a great convenience to the citizens and will meet a need we have in Pine Level.”
 
The Holley’s selected the location in north Autauga County because of the vicinity of the interstate and the population growth in Pine Level, resulting in new neighborhoods.
 
“Pine Level is a growing area of Autauga County, ready for the conveniences of having a grocery store with the immediate market for its residents,” stated Amy Brabham, Economic Development Director for the Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce. “As the area continues to grow both residentially and industrially, we will see additional commercial activity in the local area. We are honored to have the Holley’s join the community and appreciate them for choosing Autauga County to make their investment!”
