Piggly Wiggly Owner To Face Tullahoma Board

The Tullahoma Beer Board has directed Gregory Jackson of Young, Inc., owner of the Piggly Wiggly store on East Lincoln St., is to appear for a “show cause” hearing at City Hall tonight to explain why the company has not met the conditions established at its complaint hearing in February. The February hearing resulted from a December “sting” operation in which 10 of 27 local establishments with permits to sell beer were caught selling it to an underage female. In lieu of other penalties, Jackson had accepted the option of having his employees and himself complete an approved vendor training program within 60 days of the February hearing, but according to the Beer Board, the company has thus far failed to comply. Completion of said training and certification would have resulted in a reduction of the probationary period from five years to one year.
