Mount Pleasant, S.C. (October 6, 2021) - Business Partner Lynn Friess, joined by store team members, landowner partner Craig Ascue, and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, together with Mayor Will Haynie, Councilmembers Kathy Landing, Howard Chapman, and G.M. Whitley, along with Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce members Rebecca Imholz and Brian Sherman, participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for OPIE Drive-Thru Grocery, located at 1735 North Highway 17.
OPIE Drive-Thru Grocery is the future of grocery shopping. Like most other grocery stores, they offer necessities such as snacks, dairy, eggs, produce, beverages, meats, and options for babies. What makes OPIE unique is the fashion in which customers can order and receive their desired items. Customers can pull into any parking spot at the store and place an order through the OPIE app to have groceries in minutes. They can place an order ahead of time on the app or website, without fees or minimums. For orders of 5 items or fewer, customers can use the drive-thru express lane to place their order with a store clerk.
OPIE is a hometown local business aiming to serve customers, teammates, and the community with kindness and a friendly spirit. Products in stock in the store are selected with quality, health, and value in mind. If a customer does not love a product received, OPIE will replace it with an acceptable one or refund the total purchase price. The grocer is proud to use 100% post-consumer recycled paper. OPIE recycles 99% of cardboard used, and prioritizes paper products. OPIE is also partnered with the Lowcountry Food Bank to provide weekend meal packs for students who are facing food insecurity.
