Sign of the times
Workers replace the sign on a Sweetbay store that is being converted to Winn-Dixie. Stores were given quick makeovers, closing for only a few days to complete the conversions.
The Beef People
Winn-Dixie has long used its meat offerings as a point of differentiation, referring to itself — and its customers — as “The Beef People.”
Enclosed cases for produce were a feature of some Sweetbay stores, a Winn-Dixe spokeswoman told SN. Winn-Dixie incorporated these existing energy-efficient cases in its converted stores where available, including this one in the Bradenton, Fla., location.
