retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Winn-Dixie announced yesterday that 51 of its stores in the north Florida and south Georgia areas have been remodeled and upgraded, and are being rebranded with the following slogan: “Fresh Checked Every Day.”

“We’ve spent the last several years improving our stores, our merchandising and our service,” Winn-Dixie chairman/CEO/president Peter Lynch said in a prepared statement. “Now, Winn-Dixie customers in the Jacksonville area, no matter where they shop, will find a fresh and local shopping experience, with enhanced customer service, every time they visit us.”

The improvements include a new décor package, improved fresh food departments, and expanded organic and natural product selections.
