HARTLAND - Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly will open its eighth location - this time in Port Washington.

In business since 1988, in 2016 the business became an employee stock ownership plan company, meaning it is a 100 percent employee-owned company.

Pat Fox, president of Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly, said research was conducted of the Port Washington area and the feedback was that the community desired a grocery store. Once open, Piggly Wiggly will be the only grocery store in Port Washington, Fox said, after a Sentry store closed.

In fact, Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly will occupy the former Sentry location at 101 W. 7 Hills Road, but first the building will go under a complete remodel so that customers feel like they are in a whole new store, Fox said.

The anticipated opening date is late summer, probably in the second half of August, Fox said.

It will join Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly locations in Hartland, Oconomowoc, Slinger, Hubertus, Jackson, Saukville and Hartford.

Once open, Fox said customers can expect the superior service, quality products and exclusive and award-winning products made by Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly.

“We are excited to bring Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly to Port Washington and look forward to becoming part of another local community,” said Lori Fox in a statement.

Some of the products offered by Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly include Boar’s Head deli products, a fresh meat department featuring certified Angus beef, Smithfield Prime pork, Gerber Amish Natural chicken and a wide variety of fresh and frozen seafood.  In addition, Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly offers a line of their own award-winning brats which have won eight Grand Champion Awards during the last eight years at the Wisconsin Association of Meat Processors competition, as well as a Wisconsin State Fair Blue Ribbon for their infamous Spicy Southwest Jalapeno and Cheddar Chicken brat. 

“We value our team members and know that without them, we cannot provide our guests superior service,” Pat Fox said. “This creates a truly locally owned and operated shopping experience as the employees are the owners.”
