Fitzgerald-- Winn Dixie's bankruptcy is having a big impact on one South Georgia city, but economic development officials aren't that worried about the job outlook.

Winn Dixie has a plant in Fitzgerald that produces Chek Beverages and Deep South condiments. The company is trying to sell the beverage plant, but plans to close the condiments division. The entire plant employs about 250 people.

Winn Dixie will also close about 70 of its Georgia retail stores, including the one in Fitzgerald. Its employs about 50 people.

One of those new businesses will be Fitzgerald Recycling. The metal processing plant will employ about 160 people. Frontier R.V.'s will also open a Fitzgerald manufacturing unit. It's expected to create 100 new jobs.

Winn Dixie will also shut down stores in Adel, Douglas, and Thomasville.
