Winn-Dixie to remodel Jacksonville store


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Winn-Dixie announced that it is renovating and expanding its downtown Jacksonville, Fla. store—the only grocery store serving the growing downtown residential population—during a morning news conference Wednesday attended by community, business and political leaders. Upon completion of the Market Street store next year, shoppers will see an updated look inside and out, and they will find new and expanded product selections. The store will remain open throughout the remodeling.

“We are excited to be making improvements in our stores that will provide a better shopping experience,” said Peter Lynch, Winn-Dixie’s president, ceo and chairman of the board.  “Our shoppers are already experiencing improvements in customer service and product selection; now they will see a new, updated store with even better product and service offerings.”

The Market Street store, first opened in 1981, is one of 75 stores scheduled for renovation between now and next June. “This remodeling initiative is part of Winn-Dixie’s overall commitment to getting better,” said Lynch.

Besides an innovative design on the exterior, the store will be expanded by 4,000 square feet.  The store’s fresh produce, floral, seafood and deli departments will be upgraded and expanded.  The store also will receive upgrades in shelving, refrigeration and frozen food cases, as well as flooring, lighting and decor improvements. Space also is being provided to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office for officers to use while on patrol.
