Berkeley County, South Carolina is the largest county in the state, and local readers across the county gave top marks to BI-LO No. 5284 in Moncks Corner, S.C.
The store and its staff took the No. 2 spot out of more than 30 competitors in the grocery store category in the third annual “Best of Berkeley” awards.
Ballots were sent through local newspapers, the Gazette and the Berkeley Independent, to 32,000 readers in Berkeley County. Each ballot provided categories, from retail businesses and restaurants to politicians, but readers were required to fill in their nominees.
“I attribute this huge honor to our team of associates and their community-minded attitude,” said Rickie Pringle, store director at BI-LO store No. 5284. “That mentality is part of the culture of this team and the expectation is to put the customer first – not during store hours, but through community involvement.”
