Bi-Lo Holdings LLC, the Jacksonville, Fla.-based parent company of Winn-Dixie Stores Inc., and Bi-Lo LLC, plans to change the banners of 10 Georgia stores.
Bi-Lo Holdings plans to convert seven existing Harvey’s stores to Winn-Dixie stores and three Winn-Dixie stores to Harvey’s stores.
The stores are part of Bi-Lo Holdings’ pending acquisition of 134 stores from the Brussels-based Delhaize Group,
Bi-Lo Holdings officials state in a March 7 news release.
“We carefully evaluated the market areas around each store and made conversion decisions that we believe will work best for customers,” R. Randall Onstead, Bi-Lo Holdings’ president and chief executive officer, said in the release. “Customers will not see any change to the level of quality they have come to expect from either banner.”
Bi-Lo Holdings plans to disclose schedules and timelines for the store conversions at a later date, according to the release.
Bi-Lo Holdings plans to convert Harvey’s stores to Winn-Dixie stores in Brunswick, Ga., Saint Marys, Ga., and Valdosta, Ga., and convert Winn-Dixie stores to Harvey’s in Albany, Ga., Americus, Ga., and in Leesburg, Ga., according to the release.
