Closing day for some Winn-Dixie stores

August 20, 2005

Beginning Saturday, several Winn-Dixie stores across georgia may be closing. Four stores and two distribution centers in Georgia may be shut down if the facilities are not sold. If not sold, over 800 people will be without jobs.

In an effort to regain solvency, the Florida-based chain has been trying to sell many Georgia stores. The stores here in Albany won't be affected by the changes. Loyal customers are thankful their local stores are remaining open.

"I'm very pleased that it is," says customer James Walker.

"I'm sad and despondent that some of them are closing in our state. They provide a good product for the customers," says shopper Commodore Conyers.

Winn-Dixie is one of the largest food retailers in the nation and operates stores across the Southeast and in the Bahamas.
