Piggly Wiggly Store LogoPiggly Wiggly shoppers in South Carolina now can pick up a state parks passport — at a 20% discount — with their groceries.

Piggly Wiggly and the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism formed a partnership to give customers another reason to shop at Piggly Wiggly while also getting more people to consider buying an annual park passport.

“Piggly Wiggly has been ‘Local Since Forever,’ and the beautiful natural resources showcased and preserved in South Carolina’s State Parks have truly been around forever,” said David Schools, president and CEO of Piggly Wiggly Carolina Co. “The Pig family saw this partnership as a great opportunity to give our customers a significant admission discount to South Carolina State Parks.”

The discount, available in Piggly Wiggly stores in the Lowcountry and Midlands through Dec. 31, is 20%. That means the top level passport will drop from $99 to less than $80. That Park Passport Plus is good for all 47 state parks, and it covers admission for everyone in your family or in your vehicle. It also includes a copy of “Beautiful Places,” a coffee table book on the parks, and other perks.

Customers will get a voucher at the store that can be redeemed for a passport at any state park at any time in 2013. People who already have park passports can hold onto the vouchers and redeem them when their current passports expire.

Two other levels of passport are available at the discounted rate: The Statewide Passport, which covers all 47 parks, will be $60, and the Inland Park Passport, which includes only the 42 inland parks, is $40. Those are normally $75 and $50.

Camping World is celebrating the grand opening of its new Jacksonville location, officially named Camping World of Jacksonville.

Formerly Suncoast RV, Camping World of Jacksonville encompasses both a Camping World retail store and Camping World RV Sales dealership. It is located at 9012 Beach Blvd.

The grand-opening celebration, which began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 4, runs through next Sunday. Customers will find a good selection of hundreds of new and pre-owned RVs. In addition, there are daily camping accessory and parts specials, plus free door prizes to the first 50 customers each day and free coloring books for children. There will also be free lunch on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the grand-opening event.

“With its abundance of outdoor recreational activities and natural attractions, Jacksonville is an ideal location for Camping World,” said Camping World of Jacksonville General Manager of RV Sales Matt Bateh. “We look forward to continue serving the Florida, Southern Georgia and Jacksonville areas.

“This store – along with our new Birmingham store – is the first step to reaching 100 stores by 2014. We believe that the Greater Jacksonville market needed a full-service solution for RVers,” said Marcus Lemonis, Camping World’s chairman and CEO.
