Winn-Dixie Parent Company Announces Healthcare and First Responders Extra Shopping Hour

As we continue to navigate this temporary new norm, Winn-Dixie's parent company, Southeastern Grocers, is announcing another step to support the community when they need it most.

Winn-Dixie announced extended shopping hours from 8–9 p.m on Monday & Tuesday dedicated to the shopping needs of healthcare providers & first responders.

This announcement follows additional actions the company shared earlier this week to designate a special shopping hour to seniors and high-risk customers from 7–8 a.m., Monday through Friday, in all Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia stores, as well as other positive safety measures the grocer is taking including: ●      Grocer will install protective Plexiglas partitions at all store registers, customer service desks, pharmacies and liquor store counters. ●      Winn-Dixie stores will implement additional social distancing protocols, in accordance with CDC guidance, to maintain a 6-foot distance between customers and associates, along with regulated in-store occupancy standards.

●     Winn-Dixie stores will continue to offer modified store and pharmacy hours to provide the cleanest, safest possible store experience, as well as employment opportunities for those in need throughout the Southeast.
