Many remember Winn-Dixie’s presence in the area fondly. The name was common across the Shoals after the chain purchased the H.G. Hill outlets in the Quad-Cities. Then competition from Walmart took its toll.
Currently there are ten remaining Winn-Dixie stores in Alabama:
2495 Hwy 431, Anniston
2220 Bessemer Road, Birmingham
3075 Us Hwy 98, Daphne
3850 W. Main Street, Dothan
2131 Ross Clark Circle, Dothan
Hwy 59 And 16th Avenue, Gulf Shores
2502 Schillinger Rd S., Mobile
1134 South Alabama Ave., Monroeville
3881 Atlanta Highway, Montgomery
21951 D Hwy 59, Robertsdale
By the end of March there may be none left. The parent chain, Southeaster Grocers, is set to file bankruptcy the end of this month, and it’s been reported that the Winn-Dixie outlets are the least profitable.
