Winn Dixie/Harveys transition almost complete, some shoppers not impressed


The last chance to shop at one local Winn Dixie is Saturday.

The stores on Highway 19 in Lee county and on Old Dawson Road will close Saturday night. They will re-open next Friday as Harveys.

The conversion is part of Bi-Lo holdings purchase of the Harveys stores from Delhaize earlier this year.

Some shoppers are concerned with the changes.

"I haven't shopped at Harvey's in forever and when I have gone there the few times I didn't care for it. I guess we'll see," said shopper Carolyn Wills.

"We had one that went out in Fitzgerald. That's where I'm from. When it opened back up the prices were ridiculous! We hope it isn't the same," said shopper Essie Bellamy.

The stores will close on Saturday at 6 p.m. and open back next Friday at 7 a.m.
