"The Pig"

My children are in their 40's and 50's and they knew Aurelia when they were babies. She still knows them and my Grandchildren as well. There is not a nicer person in the world than Matt Maxwell. How can this happen ? I will be a part of anything we can do to "Save the Pig"

I miss the Pig -

Even though I live in Colorado now, I always stop in to the Pig and run into a friend whenever I am in town. I'm one of those in their 40s who remembers Aurelia from when I was starting grade school. I think she and mom had kids about the same time.

Call Corporate

A wise friend suggested that we all start calling corporate headquarters for CVS and Walgreens and lettting them know of the ill will they are engendering in the community. I took her advice and had a lengthy conversation with CVS. They seemed to be listening. I will be speaking with them again next week. I intend to do the same with Walgreen's. Come on Mountain Brook, keep trying. This is our way of life. This is our village. Pick up the phone and start talking.

Alternative for groceries

People of Mountain Brook/ Crestline: if there were an alternative grocery store that opened in the same area that employed former employees of the PIG- would you support it? Would you shop there to preserve our community? For example, a Trader Joe's in the same general area- would you keep the doors open? I'd love to hear your input!

Crestline Pig

Unbelievable! Everyone seems to be leaving Mountain Brook or being forced out. Maybe it's time we all left, too. The Mountain Brook City Council seems to ave done very little to help in this situation. I want to know who the landlord is. If it's who I think it is, this doesn't surprise me one bit. Can you please inform the public who the landlord is? This should be a matter of public record so why not spill the beans?

Peaceful protest

Everyone bring a chair, sit and wait until the real truth is told. If it's about Money, we as a community could pay like a sam's card. We could surround the whole building. Bring dinner or order pizza. Just a thought. Maybe right after Church? Just throwing something out there.

The Pig

That's a great idea! Even though we rarely shop there, they are a fixture and if another grocery store doesn't go in, then our City Council has totally failed us.

The Pig and the Virciglio family have been at the heart of the friendliness and joy of living in Crestline. There is NO other store that will be appreciated or welcomed in its place. I am truly saddened and disappointed to learn that the property owners were so uncooperative. Mountain Brook will suffer loss in tax revenue and in the loss of a store & it's employees that are dearly loved. This is a BIG mistake!

Such sad news

I will miss my friends at the pig and their smiling faces.

I am so deeply saddened to learn that the "Pig" will be leaving Crestline. It is hard to believe that something could not have been worked out. I can not imagine Crestline without the "Pig".
