Southeastern Grocers Bolsters Florida Footprint With New Winn-Dixie Store; Anthony Hucker Shares
JACKSONVILLE, FL - It’s a good thing February is the shortest month of the year, as many folks in Palm Beach County, Florida, will be anticipating the kickoff of next month. March 2 will mark the opening of Southeastern Grocers’ (SEG) new Winn-Dixie location, which will provide fresh concepts and extensive offerings, along with additional jobs and opportunities for local community members.
“As we begin a new year, we are continuing our commitment to expansion throughout our home state of Florida,” Anthony Hucker, President and Chief Executive Officer, said. “The retail landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade, and we believe now is the time to bolster our presence in Palm Beach County and introduce our newest store in Florida’s newest city. We look forward to being a store our Westlake community can always count on for years to come.”
SEG has renewed more than 70 percent of all stores throughout the grocer’s Southeast footprint to further enhance the shopping experience for its customers, according to a press release. This upcoming opening will continue SEG’s expansion throughout Florida, following the opening of the new St. Augustine Shores and Viera locations last year. Additionally, SEG opened eight new Winn-Dixie stores in 2020 in Boynton Beach, Fort Myers, Gainesville, Lakewood Ranch, Lake Mary, West Melbourne, and two locations in Jacksonville.
Upcoming ribbon cutting plans and festivities for customers will be announced to the Westlake, FL, community ahead of the grand opening day.
