About Hills Supermarket
Otto Hill opened a small grocery store in Whiteville, NC in 1930. The store also sold gasoline and farming supplies and quickly became a local landmark in the Whiteville Community. When Dewey Hill was a young boy he helped his father at the store and it was there he fell in love with the grocery business and the people of Columbus County.  When Dewey returned from a tour of duty with the Navy in 1946 he went back to work at the store. It was from this beginning that Hills Supermarkets was formed. Dewey learned that if you treated people fairly and sold fresh products at a fair price that customers would return time and time again.  To learn more about Hills Supermarkets, please visit www.HillsFoodStores.com.
