Piggly Wiggly in Minot – The first Piggly Wiggly in Minot was located on Main Street in the 1940’s. In the fall of 1957 the new Piggly Wiggly was opened in east Minot. It cost $320,000 to build and at the time was one of the largest and most modern grocery stores in the state. In October of 1961 a second location was opened in the Oak Park Shopping Center as the Downtown Store closed in 1960. Shortly thereafter a third location was opened at the Town & County Shopping Center. In 1982 the Oak Park location closed and reopened in the Arrowhead Shopping Center. At that time the three Piggly Wiggly stores employed 270 people.
