Hyde said he worked under Sammy Bond at Piggly Wiggly first, then worked at Carlisle’s Big Star a few years after the Carlisles built the new store in 1974. Then he went into the service with the National Guard. When he came out he went back to Piggly Wiggly to become the manager of the meat department until Piggly Wiggly closed in 2011.
