Jitney Jungle was the name of several grocery stores in Hattiesburg from the 1920s until the early 2000s.
On September 2, 1938, Hattiesburg's first modern 7000 square-feet "cash-and-carry" Jitney Jungle opened at the corner of Hardy Street and West Pine Street. It was advertised as the first air-conditioned store in Hattiesburg. New cash registers ("modern, speedy machines") printed "the number of articles purchased and the price of each" on customers' receipts. Customers used shopping carts "with rubber-tired coasters and a handle that makes pushing and guiding them quite easy." Thirty-one feet of refrigerators stretched across the rear of the store. The two baskets of each shopping cart were detachable. (Traditionally shoppers had used hand-held baskets rather than shopping carts.) After shopping a clerk would "lift the baskets off the carrier, check and bag the merchandise for the customer, and deliver it to the customer's car." 
By 1951 there was another Jitney Jungle in Petal.
Around 1964 Jitney Jungle opened at 114 South Main Street in Petal.
