WGNO News with a Twist features reporter Wild Bill Wood takes a look at Dorignac's back when the store got a little bit of a facelift, the reason the place looks a lot younger than seventy.
Dorignac's opened in 1947 when Joe Dorignac, himself, opened his store in the Lower Garden District.
Back then, Dorignac's was between Magazine Street and the Mississippi River.
Even back then, Dorignac's was all about outstanding customer service. Joe Dorignac made customer service, convenience and quality the cornerstones of his corner store.
Then in 1963 came a big move. That's when Dorignac's moved to Metairie. It's still at the same location. The address is 710 Veterans Boulevard in Metairie, Louisiana. The hours are 7am to 9pm every day.
And now Dorignac's is celebrating the big 7-0. And the store celebrates with great employees and the great customers who really keep the place going strong at seventy.
