Southeastern Grocers, the company that owns Winn-Dixie and other store brands, said that it plans to file for bankruptcy and close several Central Florida store locations.
The statement released by the company states:
“Southeastern Grocers has conducted a thorough review of options for reducing our current debt. Taking this step was critical to our future and the long-term health of our business.
After careful consideration, we have chosen to voluntarily implement a court-supervised, prepackaged restructuring agreement. We have not taken these steps without careful planning and consideration. As part of this restructuring, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to close 94 underperforming stores. It is our goal to work through our financial restructuring as quickly and efficiently as possible, and we will emerge from this process likely within the next 90 days.”
From the list provided with the press release, here are the Central Florida stores the company plans to close (all are Winn-Dixie stores unless otherwise noted):
