Winn-Dixie to close some stores in Ga.

Posted June 22, 2005

Thomasville- The Winn-Dixie in Thomasville will shut down this summer as part of the company's proposed bankruptcy reorganization plan.

     Another 325 stores will close, and roughly 22,000 jobs will be cut. About 70 people work at the store in Thomasville. Regular shoppers at that Winn-Dixie branch say they won't find the same service at other stores in town. "People are helpful. That's one thing right there. If I can't find something, or they give me rain checks. You know, if they've got something on sale, and they don't have it, they honor the rain checks. Everything in it is good," says shopper Ellen Van Alstine.

     Winn-Dixie is only closing some of it's stores in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. It's shutting down all of its stores in Tennessee, Virginia, and North and South Carolina.
