Supermarket giant Bi-Lo purchased the financially strapped Winn-Dixie chain in 2012; however, the company has never been able to turn things around for the brand. Now Bi-Lo has announced that it’s planning on closing more than 200 markets located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Currently, the closest Winn-Dixie to the Shoals is in Birmingham. The nearest Bi-Lo is also located in the Birmingham area. The chain also owns Harvey’s which has stores in North and South Carolina.
