The parent company of Winn-Dixie will close 30 of the supermarket operator’s stores in Florida, including seven in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Southeastern Grocers, which is preparing to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this month, announced Thursday that it will “voluntarily implement a court-supervised, prepackaged restructuring agreement.”
The restructuring will involve the shutdown of 94 grocery stores throughout the Southeast, or 16 percent of the stores that Southeastern Grocers owns.
The company said 582 stores will remain open after the restructuring is completed, including all of its Winn-Dixie stores in Miami-Dade County.
The Winn-Dixie stores in South Florida that will be closed include two in Jupiter at 6707 West Indiantown Road and 3757 Military Trail.
The others are located at 2581 North Hiatus Road in Cooper City, 6301 County Line Road in Miramar, 7139 West Broward Boulevard in Plantation, 277 South Pompano Parkway in Pompano Beach and 7015 North University Drive in Tamarac.
Southeast Grocers also operates supermarkets under the Fresco Y Mas brand and plans to close one in South Florida at 2675 South Military Trail in West Palm Beach. – Mike Seemuth
