Former Big Star stores under new ownership

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - After 35 years in the Hattiesburg area, Big Star has a change in ownership. Both former Big Star stores, located on James Street and Main Street, are now owned by Sullivan Inc.

"We heard that [former owners] were getting ready to retire. And we just came down here to talk to them for a little bit, got to know them, and felt good about it," owner Steve Sullivan said. "They didn't have any family that wanted to take over so, it looked like a good opportunity for us."

With the exception of signs, the store's operation will remain the same.

Sullivan's grocery has seven locations throughout the South.
