Sweetbay Stores Opening Next Year Under New Name
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Monday, October 21st, 2013 at 3:51pm.
Sweetbay Supermarket Stores will be Winn-Dixie next year. Jacksonville based Bi-Lo Holdings LLC will purchase both Sweetbay and Reid's for $265M and rebrand their stores. Bi-Lo bought Winn-Dixie in 2011 for $530M and will merge with Winn-Dixie stores over the next few months.
The new organization will result in about 700 stores in eight states. There are six stores in Collier and Lee named Sweetbay and four Winn-Dixies in Immokalee, Marco Island, Golden Gate, and Lehigh that will all carry the Winn-Dixie name.
The sale is not yet finalized, and we guess it could not come about, but all organizations have made the announcement in mid-October of their intent.
