WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) -
The field of grocery stores south of I-10 in Hancock County grew this week when Claiborne Hill Supermarket opened its doors for business. Claiborne Hill is located on the corner of Highway 603 and Highway 90 in Waveland.
"This is a really nice store and I'm very impressed. It's beautiful. It's very clean, it's very nice," said Kiln resident Lois Elliott.
"It came together a lot slower than we would have liked," store owner Garrett Acquistapace said. "But overall, we're happy with the results of the project."
The full service supermarket employs 110 people and features a large produce department, a seafood and meat department with an old fashioned butcher, as well as a bakery and deli.
"Besides just the perimeter of the store, we have a lot of specialty groceries inside the store. We've added to our lines of organic. We have a lot of selection in this store," said Acquistapace.
Residents who live south of I-10 were starved for grocery store options. Of the five stores operating before Katrina, only one reopened after the hurricane. Now there are four supermarkets to choose from.
"We are way too excited. We've been wanting this forever and I guess it's taken eight years to have a wonderful grocery store," explained Bay St. Louis resident Jenise Mcardell. "I feel like I'm at Whole Foods in Mississippi."
"People like to save money and they go where they can get the best bargains. So since we don't have to depend on one store, we can shop around and find the best price," Lois Elliott said.
Claiborne Hill will be open seven days a week. Sunday through Thursday the hours are 7am til 9pm; Fridays and Saturdays the store will stay open until 10pm.
