Story By: Gerell LawhorneStaff Journalist

Winnsboro Discount Foods, located at 205 South Congress Street, opened on July 20, 2019. I asked the owner, Mr. Daniel Craig, what his inspiration was for opening the store, and he stated, “I wanted to provide the citizens of Winnsboro a place to shop for affordable grocery items. This town has a need for this type of store.”

The hours of operation are from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday-Saturday. Some of the price ranges are as follows: king size candy bars are 4/$1, snack foods are $0.29, cereal and protein bars are both $1.00. Individual bottles of water are being sold for $0.10.

For now, Mr. Craig is fully staffed, but he looks forward to having more employment openings in the future. “I would like everyone to know that we always have different merchandise, and we also will be taking EBT soon. We do accept credit cards and cash. We also will be serving frozen foods soon! I would like to thank everyone in the community for their support and all who have come by to shop so far," Mr. Craig expressed.
