RE: Winn Dixie auctions Southern USA
The Winn/Dixie right down the way from my house closed. Rumour has it that it will be replaced by a Hispanic grocery of larger proportions than any of its predecessors here are at present; it may actually be several competing merchants going in together.
Their other, larger location on the Eastside is probably going to be a Publix - that's my guess, anyway.
There will be very few things about them that I will miss. Their prices (except on specials) were higher than everyone else's and they were the only store locally that did not double coupons.
I find myself missing my local Harris-Teeter store far more than I will W/D. Fortunately, my cards will still work at both places. It just might be worthwhile for me to visit H-T when I travel to Charlotte/Gastonia/Shelby to pick up what I cannot find here, such as Grandma Brown's Baked Beans and Jamison's and Mack's Livermush.
Unmissingly, Ort. Carlton in Athens, Georgia.
