65-year-old business in Intracoastal City plans to close; Maxie Pierce Grocery locking its doors on Sept. 30
When Maxie Pierce Grocery in Intracoastal City closes on Sept. 30, it will be for the last time after 65 years for this family business. If you want one last shrimp po-boy or fishing tackle on sale, you better get there soon.
The Boffys are hoping to sell the lot and building as a camp or office in the coming months.
The family business first opened as Maxie Pierce’s Restaurant in 1955.
Maxie and Estelle Pierce capitalized on the growing industries in Intracoastal City in the 1950s and 60s by also opening a filling station, boat launch, and grocery store in 1962.
