19 Nov, 2020

Southeastern Grocers announced recently the opening of four Winn-Dixie stores in Florida—Boynton Beach, Jacksonville, Lakewood Ranch and Gainesville. The four locations are the first of eight new Winn-Dixie stores scheduled to open throughout Florida, reports Chain Store Age. The grocer will open stores in Fort Myers, Lake Mary and Melbourne later this year, and in Viera in early 2021.
Each Winn-Dixie store is designed to provide customers with a unique shopping experience featuring the freshest produce and highest-quality meats and seafood.
“We are proud to provide our customers a shopping experience that is uniquely crafted for their community,” said Anthony Hucker, president and CEO of Southeastern Grocers.
Winn-Dixie, together with the SEG Gives Foundation, is donating a combined $80,000 to veteran-related initiatives, including $25,000 to support local veteran organizations within the new stores’ communities, $30,000 to Folds of Honor to provide six scholarships to the children of disabled and fallen service members, and another $25,000 donation to Folds of Honor in partnership with Maxwell House.
