Winn-Dixie History

Winn-Dixie was founded by William Milton Davis and his sons in Burley, Idado in 1914.  Davis bought a general stores which he renamed to Davis Mercantile.

In 1925, Davis borrowed $10,000 (about $125,000 in today’s dollars) from his father, moved to Miami, Florida and purchased Rockmoor Grocery.  Two years later, the business was renamed to Table Supply and 4 additional stores were opened.

In 1933, 33 additional stores were added with the purchased of Lively Stores chain for $10,000.  William Davis died the following year.

In 1939, William’s sons bought 51% of Winn-Lovett, a 73 store chain.  In 1944, the brothers adopted Winn-Lovett as the company name and moved the corporate office to Jacksonville, Florida.  More acquisitions followed in the 40s and 50s and Winn-Lovett went public in 1952.

The company continued to grow through acquisitions up until the 2000’s.

In 2005, the company went into bankruptcy and planned to close over 300 stores.  In 2011, the company was purchased by BI-LO.

There are currently 485 Winn-Dixie branded stores in the US, mostly operating in the South.  The Winn-Dixie corporate office is still located in Jacksonville.

On April 18 at 6:30 I had to go to the Ridge Manor Fl pharmacy to pick up the norco prescribed to me by my Dr. the same Dr I’ve been going to for almost 10Yrs. Anyway my family and I have been going to the Winn Dixie in Ridge Manor Fl for over 15 yrs. Love them all, very helpful and just great people. We moved to Spring Hill Fl (35) miles away 6 mths ago. I was allowed to transfer the gabapentin over but not the norco. I was told they are only for her patients/customers?? When I went to the Ridge Manor pharmacy tonightvand told Harry the pharmacist what Ive been told he said no, not possible. So I told him you call and find out for yourself (352-686-XXXX) literally he was on hold for 7 to 8 minutes. When he told the pharmacist how many yrs my family ans I’ve been going to the Winn Dixie in Ridge Manor and why was it that I could get my nerve meds from her (spring hill) but not the other, that its not right that I must drive 70 miles round trip. She told him the same thing?? That the Norco is for (Her) patients/customers only. To which he replied, she is one of the customers there, you’ve been filling her gabapentin for mths. To which she replied, I told you there for MY csts/patients only! And hung up. He then apologized for her actions and said i’m sorry I don’t know what else to do. I said that’s okay, I do. I then stopped by CVS then Walgreens not telling either what had happened and posed the question to both. Is it legal to (HOLD) medication for your csts/patients?? And both told me, it’s against the law. So in the morning I’ll be calling the corporate number, narcotics/vice in Hernando cty, the. BBB and the of course DEA.

I worked at store 0080 in Jacksonville Florida. The Store manager, “Junior” Khan, was very rude and spoke down to all his employees, except for his golden children that could do no wrong. He made some associates cry and his remorse was short lived. He is a bully who seems to think his position warrants behaving like he is a drill sergeant, yet there is no basic training underway. He makes the majority of his associates feel unwanted and seems to delight in making them feel like they are worthless. The way a person is trained in this store is that once you mess up, you get yelled at, however, you were never properly trained in the proper way of executing what you made the mistake on. Team Leads make less than cashiers, based on the increase in minimum wage that occurred after the Team Lead was hired. It was such a bad environment to work in, I just left. The store could really use better management, if they want to keep people working there.

I have the same type of manager in my store 2330, Palm Bay Florida. Joe was out for about a month and the store was peaceful, everybody was treated equally and we employees were much happier. Now that he is back, his favourite employees/departments get the hours, he blames other employees for mistakes his favourites make, comes down on our bakery manager for clearly ridiculous reasons and will only reprimand certain people. People are afraid to say anything because they do not want to lose their jobs. It’s becoming worse than Wal-Mart.

My son picked up fried chicken and chicken tenders from Green Cove Springs, Fl location last night. I was eating the first chicken tender when I came across a half inch length of metal scrub pad. I called and was told to just bring the other tenders back and they would reimburse me. REALLY?! That’s the response I’ve gotten on another occasion when they had sat in the heating pan too long and were inedible. This was METAL that was in my food. I would think there would be a little more concern that “oh, just bring it in and we’ll reimburse you”. I’ve been shopping at this location since we moved in 5 years ago. Do I really need to consider traveling a little further to Publix now?

Steven Amigo March 15, 2016 at 3:11 am

what the f**k is publix going to do? its the same sh*t. ive worked at both, and they both have the same handling practices. i hate it too, but for you folks who talk about going to publix rather than winn dixie, it’s the same handling, the same stuff. the only thing we dont do at winn dixie is completely reimburse you because something rang up wrong, or give you the whole thing free because you it rang up wrong. publix seems to be like disney with that sh*t, but the only people who really complain, are split shoppers anyway, who just want to claim they will shop at publix from now on, but come back when the sales are right. f-ing grocery store c*nts are the worst. go f-yourself.

I will leave a comment but I doubt if upper management cares due to the fact that it doesnt pertain to them. I worked for winn dixie for many of years in the corporate office and on 10/1/2015 while sitting at my desk an email was sent out to within headquarters out of the blue stating there is a meeting 9:30am and dont be late. The good news is, we all followed command but the bad news is, they FIRED all of us in the meeting and told us that winn dixie was cutting cost every where they could and the people that are sitting in this room will NOT be going forward during this re-organization. We were ESCORTED to our desk like we were CRIMINALS to pack up our belongings then had to be escorted downstairs where the POLICE was waiting in case some one wanted to act a fool. That was low down dirty nasty to have done that to HARD working people who dedicated their time and energy for years only to be tossed out like SHIT! Winn Dixie went across country to hire a FOREIGNER from AUSTRALIA that needed a GREEN CARD to get rid of their own hardworking people. No one was given the opportunity to apply within the company that day. This affected people in so many ways. People are reaching out to agencies for help only to be told no and or turned away. People are losing their cars and houses, no medical insurance to attend the hospital to treat their illnesses, no food to eat, kids cant afford to play activities in school because of the parents not having a job, people are pawning their valuables to put food on the table while the CEO and the staff that he brought over with him are living the AMERICAN DREAM while the we are still struggling to find a job to keep from losing there sanity. From the CEO and everyone that had a hand in releasing all 250 of us on 10/1/2015 with no heart or care in their souls i pray that GOD have mercy on you when the tables start turning. Always remember that only the ‘strong will survive’ and what goes up will come down.

I worked at Winn Dixie and let me tell you something! I was the worst experience of my life trying to make a living. The associates were all ignorant, don’t know their products, and especially the nastiest smelling creatures you would ever be around. The management has no control of the store, roaches running about, molded inventory and thieves like you’ve never seen.

I have just recently ended my employment at this store, and thankfully so. I dreaded work everyday and hated every second of being there and no other reason than the management was atrocious. I have never seen such lazy workers, and rude. I have never seen so many rude comments about customers after they walk out the doors. My manager, Kaylie Stephens was the most immature. I have been called “bitch”, “stupid bitch”, “whore”, “dumb ass” and ETC. I never retaliated because of fear of nothing happening but my time there be even worse. Any complaints received by Joel White would not be taken seriously nor into consideration. By both customers and employees. The hours were terrible. I was working 2-3 days a week, after publix opening up in our town it seemed they didn’t care to lose employees. The needs or requests of employees were never considered. If you asked for days off, your hours would be cut because Kaylie didn’t like people who asked for days off EVEN if they requested in extreme advance. Kaylie told me to my face that she has favorites. She gave an awful reference of one person who works there to a job as an intern that she needed and was going to do the internship while working at Winn Dixie. I hated working there and I’m sorry to say that my experience has made me hate the chain of Bi-Lo’s southeastern grocers and there will be no good review from me, only discourage to not shop there. and 5% discount? people have worked there for 20+ years who don’t even have it set up because it’s not worth it. Your employees deserve much more. My advice to you is to clean out the management and put people in place that take the business seriously and care about the store.

I go to Winn-Dixie on US Highway 301 on a regular basis and their floors are always dirty. One manager at the Winn-Dixie I go to even uses profanity to put down his employees. I heard him one time yelling at his employee and they were behind office doors. I love Winn-Dixie, but they are need of good managers. He refers to his employees as his people since when do own people, has slavery came back. The employees are really nice minus management.

Hello,
I live in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida and shop at the Winn Dixie Store on Hwy. A1A. Recently I was there with my 18 month old grandson. I had bought him a balloon at the Dollar Tree store next door earlier. When I was done shopping I had to go to the service desk to get a Lottery ticket, and on my way there a hanging sign with a sharp corner punctured the balloon. As you can imagine my grandson was very upset. The manager, named Ricky, was right there and saw what had happened. He offered to get another balloon for him but I said I didn’t buy it there, but he insisted . This was so nice of him and really meant a lot to my grandson! Ricky is a very nice person and manages the store very well. I just wanted to let corpoate know that they have a quality guy in charge there and wanted him to be rewarded for his efforts.

I worked at a store in Gainesville Florida. Store managers are rude, they talk bad about other associates, they are bullies and they discriminate against women. It frowned upon for associates to take lunch breaks. They watch you on the cameras and they listen to your conversations with other associates on the phones in the department. The management at the location makes you feel very unwanted and makes you feel like you are worthless. They also have double standards when holding associates accountable. This is a very bad environment to work in. This store needs new management asap.

I work at store #640 in Dunedin fl, and I’ve been working their for 2 years in the meat and seafood department, and I have yet to get a raise. I’m getting paid about the same as a bagger is, I’d like to let you know this is ridiculous and I also looked at other companies pay for meat clerks and the average pay is about 10.00 an hour. Stop being cheap and pay your associates the fair amount they should be getting paid. I work my tail off for this company and could be making more money flipping burgers at McDonalds. Change your ways for now and for long term.

I was in the Winn Dixie store in Chiefland , Florida tonight and witnessed customer service at its finest. This is store 0168. There was an elderly lady riding on an electric cart . She seemed to be having trouble manuvering it and ending up breaking her wooden walking stick that she deffinatly needed to walk with. She wedged it between a post and the mobile device she was using that belonged to Winn Dixie. That’s when your employee Austin Williams jumped into action. He ran directly to your customer and asked was she ok ? She was very upset because she said she needed this cane to be mobile and was in tears. This young man told her please don’t cry , I have several canes in the back that have been here a long time and no one has claimed them. He went to the back and got 3 of them. She picked one out and She cried and thanked him and all of us checking out had a large feel good look on our face. This is because your employee went above and beyond to comfort this poor woman in her moment of distress. Some people including AUSTIN WILLIAMS AT STORE 0168 thinks it’s no big deal. I on the other hand think very differently. I think this young man needs to be recognized for his valiant efforts to help the handicapped elderly. Signed a very proud Winn Dixie shopper. I want to know what happens with this. My name is Michael Caves and my cell is 386-466-****. Thank You Winn Dixie !!!!

I am writing in support of my daughter who is a 22 yr old adult with disabilities. She is ADHD (like many ), but she also has 2 forms of dyslexia. She will never go to college.

She has worked for Winn Dixie in Port Charlotte, FL at store #736 for 4 years. Throughout those 4 years she has repetitively asked for more hours and , a full time position when available. I know that she has discussed Full time employment at least once with the manager of the store, multiple times with her immediate supervisor and I have even spoken to mid-level management about increasing her hours. This summer 2 FT positions opened up for which she applied and people who had been with the company far less than her received the job (one had only been at W-D a few months).

Liz has been a good employee in the deli at this store and can do everything in the department. She even had to close the hot side and cold side of the deli by herself one night with only the help of a trainee due to call -ins.

I will quote the American Disabilities Act for you:
“ADA Title I: Employment

Title I requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. For example, it prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, promotions, training, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment. It restricts questions that can be asked about an applicant’s disability before a job offer is made, and it requires that employers make reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities, unless it results in undue hardship. Religious entities with 15 or more employees are covered under title I.”

I spoke to the manager of the store this morning who told me that Liz was not discriminated against, but the way I read this, it is more than just being discriminated against. She has to be offered equivalent employment I have the documentation for her disabilities. My daughter’s name is Elizabeth Kanaszka, and she has worked at the Port Charlotte, Fl store#736 for 4 yrs.

I would appreciate some consideration for her. I am seriously concerned about a company that does not give the long term employees a chance to excel. She has seen a revolving door of co-workers at this store.

I am so tired of the poor, innaccurate, slow service at the Winn DIxie is south Picyaune, MS. The cashiers are nice but the multitple issues I always encounter at this store have unfortunately made it difficult if not impossible for me to patronize it. Customer service is poor and the managers do not seem to know anything about service recovery when problems arise with transactions. The customer does not feel appreciated or valued.

I shop in Jefferson parish Winn Dixie grocery stores. I have shopped at Winn Dixie with my mother when we moved to eastern New Orleans in 1958… , 57 years. I still love Winn Dixie but have for the first time felt a need to register a complaint.
I’m not sure who is person choosing the music being broadcast over head in the stores I presently shop in, but could there be some other selections that are more relaxing. I stopped going to the store at 2104 Williams Blvd Kenner, and go the extra miles to the Airline Drive store. Sadly it’s the same sounds ( hard to call it music)… I don’t casually shop anymore, I make a list a get out quickly as possible.
Can this situation be addressed ? Thank you in advance for a way to register my opining.

Not sure if this will help me any buts it’s worth a shot… I am an employee at the Winn Dixie in phenix city (#433). I’ve been there for almost a year and am now working the service desk. There is a particular bagger that also works at this store who has given me multiple problems and I am absolutely fed up. I’ve talked to the managers and it’s seems nothing has been done or will be done. They give this particular bagger “a talk” but that of course isn’t doing anything. Just today this bagger decides to trip me (no I didn’t fall, but defiantly could have) and that was my breaking point. I would be here all night if I were to write everything that he’s done not only to me but others. I am absolutely fed up with it and I don’t believe I should have to have him ruining my day at work every time I am scheduled with him.

I shop at Winn-Dixie #2342 located at 3120 N WOODLAND BLVD. DELAND, FL 32720 only when necessary. It is closer to my home than Publix. With todays competitive prices companies need to do all they can to gain and retain customers. Saving money is very important to me. However, customer service is just as important. The service counter has some of the most unfriendly, rude and unhappy employees I’ve ever encountered. I try to avoid checking out there and use them only when I buy a lotto ticket or have a smaill order. I am made to feel I’m an interuption. There is an employee that works the service counter that is of Indian heritage. She’s been working at that Winn Dixe for a long time. She is very rude and unpersonable. She does not acknowledge the customer or say thank you. I have found that to be true with all of your employees that work the service counter. I realize working in customer service is not easy. Especially if you don’t like your job, which most appear to feel that way. However, it’s up to management to notice the aditude of their staff, and make it mandatory to give their customer a good experience and want to shop at that store. After making a purchase there this morning without being acknowledged or thanked, I’ve decided I would rather make the drive to Publix.

Dear Sir/ Madam:
I am deeply distressed that after forcing Dollar Tree to reduce the size of their food section, you are still not satisfied and are requiring that they eliminate their food section totally.
Your greed and lack of concern for those on fixed incomes or unemployed is disgraceful. Many people depend on the Dollar Tree’s low food prices for survival.
Eliminating food at Dollar Stores will not improve your business because people on low or fixed incomes cannot afford your prices (to say nothing of your lack of selection.) However, I am sure that WALMART will thank you for increasing their business.
The food pantries in our county are overburdened, and this will just place a heavier responsibility on them making it harder for them to meet the needs of the community.
I personally prefer to frequent businesses that treat my community members with respect and dignity. Therefore, I will not be frequenting your stores.

Sincerely,
Jacque

I just left winn Dixie on 680 n federal hwy ft Lauderdale fl not sure the address but I’m upset that me & my friend could not even shop comfortably because we were being watched like dogs with at least 3 or more employees down our back I asked an employee April what aisle the chips was on and she replied “we do not sale chips” when I notice the sign on top I asked her “then when I noticed the sign on top I asked why does the sign say chips” she replied “I dont know we don’t sale chips” I asked her for her name she replied to me “CHIPS” I continued to shop but it bothered me that I’m being watched like a criminal since the minute I step in the door and the workers are also rude.

It nice for me to receive my money now because it has been so long from 1999 to now 2015. Please send my compensation to my own Bank Account, and take it back from your employees who had stole my money from Union Bank to Wells Forgo Bank.

I was an employee at Winn Dixie Store and I was one of the employee who won the class settlement from this store, and I found out that other people had claim my compensation without my permission. I do not receive my money from Winn Dixie , and I was told to contact the store about it. Please contact me about it because things are going out of control. I want my own fund and I want to invest it from Union Bank to Wells Forgo Bank. I am at Raleigh, North Carolina.

dear sir:
on sunday 5/17/2015 I went to the Winn-Dixie store in high springs . when I went through check out I wrote a check for 69.65 . the clerk said there was something wrong and called the manager. I believe her name was Jennifer. she informed me that I had
a new checking account and that I could only write two checks for the week.
I had to change banks because td closed in fort white. I have been shopping with you
for 25 yrs. this was embarrassing and uncalled for. the two checks I wrote earlier in the week had been cleared at the bank . I was not trying to write a bad check as the manager
inferred. I will not be a patron of Winn-Dixie grocery stores any longer. I know that will
not affect your bottom line . just want you to know that I am very displeased with the way this was handled.

Winn Dixie Store #0272, the store in my neighborhood, has the best fresh roasted turkey breast. Roasted in store, minus all the additives of commercial turkey breasts. I buy it at least once a week……it is delicious. Coupled with the Winn-Lovett baguette, a better sandwhich you cannot find. So why am I writing……….There are numerous times the turkey breast and/or bread is unavailable. Suprising that such popular and wonderful products have not been roasted in the deli or baked in the bakery. On Tuesday past, I went to the deli to order turkey. None was in the case. Asking the deli clerk, she informed me that they just went into the oven. It was 4:00 in the afternoon. So I came back the next day, my favorite turkey breast was in the case waiting to be sliced. As my order was being completed, I walked over to the bakery section…..you guessed it…..no bread. I have talked to many store managers over the years about this problem. But of course they come and go as do the employees. The good ones never stay around as they are moved to other stores. As I read the other comments on this site, I realize it is hopeless. Winn-Dixie’s parent company simply doesnt care. What a shame…….Our store is located in an affluent area, ample parking and a convenient size. What a gold mine it would be if updated to modern grocery standards. Or at best managed at a level above C-,

I was attempting to pick up Tums by the pharmacy a winn dixie associate was sitting on a milk crate blocking the area. I waited patiently for her to move over so I could get the Tums but she wouldn’t move. To make it worse she made eye contact with me looked away and continued to organize the shelf sitting on a milk crate in the middle of the aisle. Very disappointing visit store 0664

” I waited patiently for her to move”

How about instead of her trying to read your mind, you simply say, “Excuse me”, and have a polite conversation explaining that you would like to get to the Tums???

Why is it always about me, me, me these days, like no one else matters.

WAGE THEFT!
I worked for six or seven days over a two week period in November of 2014 at store #290 in Ft Lauderdale, FL I voluntarily quit and never received my last- and only paycheck. Since then, I have called the store directly, emailed the online help desk, filed a compliance complaint with Convercent.com (the Winn Dixie third party “ethics” line) and spoken to an Winn Dixie Human Resources representative who promised the check would be mailed – now it is March 30th – some 4 months have elapsed -and I still have not received my pay.I did receive a W-2 for the wages -so I will be taxed on the income Winn Dixie has denied me. Winn Dixie acknowledges I earned the money -and refuses to simply put a stamp on an envelope and mail my check – they also have my direct deposit information and consent – but have not paid me. This is by definition of Florida statutes wage theft. My last recourse is Small Claims court , since Florida no longer has a Department of Labor. Needless to say; I’ll never shop there again.

I was in the Riverview FL store on 301 when I had a horrible experience first with a customer then with a manger named Lisa. I left my dog in my vehicle for less than 15 minutes when the customer service desk had me paged about a customer complaining about the dog in my truck. It was 59 degrees outside and my dog (whom I love dearly) was in NO danger. The store handled the entire situation poorly hence I will never return. A manager named Matt apologized to me which I appreciate greatly. Never-the-less, I will not return to this store and I hope Winn Dixie goes out of business. Lisa informed me that it was a police matter (which is not true). The customer accosted me in front of others and the store allowed it to happen. I know and talk to a lot of people and will tell others not to shop there either. Clearly I and my dog are not welcome anywhere near your lousy establishment.

Winn-Dixie store at US 1 & Woolbright road in Boynton Beach is officially CLOSED.

If Winn-Dixie isn’t going to take their business serious and hire competent employees and managers, update the stores, which look like they’re still in the 70’s – and make AN EFFORT then it’s about time to pull out of South Florida, Anthea. Tell Brian to look at the numbers… again.

For crying out loud YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE THE OLD CEO’s NAME SPELLED PROPERLY. B-Y-A-R-S. LET ALONE THE NEW “PRESIDENT” ANTHEA JONES’ NAME ON THIS WEBSITE.

Last night I went in to your store on 92nd and combee in lakeland fl to fill prescription. I had just been discharged from hospital after 5 day stay with heart attack. Came in at around 7:30 turned in scripts and told her i would be waiting for them need for the night. She filled the script. And left locking them in pharmacy. All the empolyees around said not we can do you will just have to come back tomorrow…… asked to see manager was ask why he cant get in their either. When manager on duty came up appologized and said nothing I can do about it my daughter asked him to call and ask her to come back he said no she wont come back. He suggested going over to walgreens to get them…….your pharmacist wrote on my paperwork filled so I couldnt even do this…..beyond upset with this will be perusing this much farther.

Yesterday when I shopped at my local Winn-Dixie in Apopka that a corporate decision to discontinue carrying Starbucks Discoveries at this store has been made, and that I might find it at another store. I’ve been shopping at this store because they do carry this product. STARBUCKS DISCOVERIES isn’t just a good product but an excellent one. I’m hoping and requesting that you revisit and reconsider this decision
Hoping that customer opinion is of value to Winn-Dixie. Thank you for your attention in this matter.

I’ve been employed with Winn Dixie 4 months I’ve already been promoted to office. Well I came into work Wednesday as usual to close the store an before my shift I was basically accused of stealing money. So She demoted me by taking me out of the office an putting me in seafood. An she’s hiring someone to investigate it an I was advised this person would be talking with me also. All this after advising another manager of a conflict between me an another associate the week before. That manager telling me I’m afraid of this person an I’m just scared. Yet took no effort of resolving the issue.

I just wanted to let you know about the amazing experience we had at Winn Dixie store #2484!! I work at Spring Hill Elementary and I contacted Elaine to hold a Winn Dixie Math Night for our students. I had never organized this event and Elaine had never done one either. Elaine and John did an amazing job with the help of your outstanding staff!! After a little hiccup in the plan, they pulled together the most amazing night for our school. They provided dinner, dessert boxes, and gift bags for our families. They were professional but more importantly friendly and accommodating!! They went out of their way to make this the most amazing experience for our students. The feedback we received from the students and their parents was outstanding. You are so lucky to have these amazing people working for your company. I can’t thank them enough for making this evening a wonderful success!! Thank you for giving the students in our community the opportunity to learn math in a real-world setting!!!

We truly need God and Jesus Christ in the USA now more than ever!

But…I want to tell you how much I love my Winn-Dixie store in Plantation, FL on Broward Blvd. That store is great. They have lots of Buy-one-get-one-free sales.

Their bakery, cakes, breads, pastries are yummy!! Their deli has the best hot food including delicious meatloaf, ribs, all kinds of chicken wings, pulled pork, oven roasted turkey and great cold cuts too!! The guy that cooks that stuff should be a chef!!

They always have sales in the produce department and their whole bean coffee is great too.

The store is clean, but if there is something a little dirty, I can tell one of the guys and suggest what to clean or disinfect with. They always say thank you!

So, God bless you WINN-DIXIE and may God always give you kind employees, managers, customers, great food, good prices, wisdom, creativity, financial blessings, a giving heart to help others, love and great health too in Jesus’ Name!!

Don’t give up!! You can still be the best and give the praise to GOD who helps you.

I was very sad to see Sweetbay sell out to Winn Dixie in the Villages, Fl. I decided to give them a chance, but there chances are running out. I have had to take food back that was bad In the produce section. Bag my own groceries, skip things I want in an isle I couldn’t get to because they were stocking the shelves or redoing them. Today I made a complaint to the manager Kim, because I had to ask for 4 things that were not on the shelves at 10:30 a.m. in the produce department. Then I went to go down the organic food isle and it was blocked by 3 people working on moving things around. Not one of the asked if there was anything in the Isle I wanted. Those truck should come in early enough so the employee’s can stock the shelves before the customers come in. I talk to 3 employee’s and they are unhappy with having to stock the shelves in front of customers. I also have talk to a lot of people and they are upset with the situation there at the Villages store. I feel you need to some changes soon or you are going to loose a lot of business. I like being able to shop a store close my home, however if things don’t change at this store. I will have to go elsewhere.

Boycott Winn-Dixie Pharmacy on 34th Street North in saint Petersburg Florida 33713

I am going to Boycott Winn-Dixie Pharmacy on 34th Street North!! Rich the pharmacist was working Thursday(10/16/2014) has a “King/God complex.
A kidney dialysis patient that recently had surgery on his fistula arm was given a prescription from his Doctor. The Doctor is well aware of what he is currently taking and when and how much!
Rich called the Doctor at my request after refusing to fill it.
The doctor said, it is ok to fill the script however ,*Rich informed the Doctor that he was confiscating the prescription and shredding it.
Since when do pharmacist over rule a Doctor? After I heard that, I questioned the shredding of the document and he “INVITED ME BEHIND THE COUNTER TO WATCH HIM SHRED IT! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?” I REFUSED TO GO BEHIND THE PHARMACY COUNTER AND REQUESTED HE TEAR IT UP IN FRONT OF ME AT THE COUNTER. HE COMPLYIED WITH GREAT FLOURISH IN THREE PIECES. THEN HE LAUGHED AND LAUGHED. Laughing while someone is suffering is a horrible thing.
I wonder how many more people have gone through this? I am sure Rich is just one of many but this guy was a real jerk. In my personal opinion. *** I am so angry at his complete disregard of my feeling and the disrespectful actions of laughing!

I spoke with the Pharmacy District Manager and was told because the prescription was taken to another pharmacy before I brought it there. It looked like I was “Pharmacy shopping”. The problem was the first pharmacy(* hospital pharmacy*) did not have the medication needed so I called Winn Dixie to see if they had any and was told YES. So I took it there.
The Winn Dixie Pharmacy District Manager assured me she would look into his actions as well as the tape for that day. She seemed concerned about the way he acted and the fact he invited me behind the counter even though the local pharmacy told me their surveillance has no sound? She informed me that some do.
Oh well, at least I was not completely disregarded when I did complain? I believe in karma so everything in life comes full circle. I was a customer when the store was Kash n Karry , then SweetBay, many years and and since opened here as well as many years in inverness / floral city in my younger years. Bye Winn Dixie……

I don’t know how some of the employees make it past the interview and go on to get hired. It is honestly baffling. They are extremely immature, gossipy, rude, and self-absorbed. Mainly the teenagers there are what I am talking about. They favorite some people and randomly will treat others who don’t fit the “cool” bill like total crap, not even looking up to say anything, giving dirty looks, not giving them the time of day. One new employee who’s a teenager snapped at a customer. Very bad and unprofessional and extremely rude behavior. Unbelievable.

Dear Sir:

I am appalled to hear that Dollar Stores who are in plazas where Winn Dixie is also a tenant have been informed that they must reduce their food aisles to 500 square feet or less, and remove their drink and toy/snack machines.
If this is not illegal it is certainly immoral. Many people rely on the Dollar Stores’ low prices due to sever financial restrictions such as loss of job or living on shoe string social security budgets. Still others buy food there to donate to food pantries.
At the very least this appears to be a form of monopolizing and bullying.
I will be alerting the local news media in hopes that they will provide wide range coverage to this injustice.
I definitely will no longest shop for anything at Winn Dixie and will be looking into transferring my prescriptions from the Winn Dixie Pharmacy to another local establishment, most likely Publix as I will be doing my grocery shopping in their beautiful, new, full service store in the future.

Respectfully,

My fiance just started working at one of your stores…things have been rocky from the start. Second day there he gets pulled from him department, of which he was in training for lead, and is told very rudely to get over it. Then following, after speaking to management and telling them exactly when he can work without any issue, they tell him to close every night, be paid for only two and to continue to work two different departments while only getting paid the very base pay. He has a family…we have a two year old…she can’t stay up past 9 every single night. He deserves to be able to put his daughter to bed. The schedule that was agreed upon literally got tossed to the side. The staff look at him and say you either do this or you just quit. Ha. This is after they told him they were so shorthanded. This Winn Dixie can’t afford to keep making their employees quit. Over 15 people have already quit in his department alone since the start of the year. That’s got to tell you something. Please…try and make me understand how this treatment even works.

this morning in the pouring rain i had to bring my daughter to your store here in Pensacola store #0506 or 0605 anyways it is off of nine mile and chemstrand. again my daughter was sick and I needing to go and get some medicine for my daughter. Nevertheless, again it was around 750 am july 19th 2014, and again it was raining really bad. now I didn’t think much about the shoes that I was wearing (flip flops, not the best choice for rain) however I needed to get her some medicine and i was waiting for me dr. to call me back with what else I needed for her. One of your employees was dropped off at the front door, which of course I didn’t have any issues with however I am hurrying through the rain with a toddler in tote with a towel and in flip flops.. Your employees Ride for the day. proceeded to insist on making me play chicken with their car. I was saying “you have got to be kidding me” very loud and “come on, it’s pouring down out here” we were not allow me to cross into the store nor were they moving their car in a courteous manner either. Did I mention it is raining really bad and I am carrying a toddler and we are getting soaken wet because your employee’s ride felt that they have the right of way to have us endure either getting hit by a car or getting soaked .. I finally got into your store and I told the first person I seen which was a man that (and pointed to the employee who allowed for this to happen) I am so pissed right now. How dare that employee do that. they she came up to me and instead of apologizing for her and her drivers actions for the rudeness and how inconsiderate that it was and that all pedestrian have the right of way not employees rides.. She starter verbally assaulting me yelling what my “daddy’ you mean MY DADDY. and was extremely hostile towards me and my daughter. scoffed rolled her eyes and went to the back of the store with an attitude I told the young lady in the check out lane to please contact the manager on duty.. then I proceeded to the medicine aisle and asked her if she could just have him come over there. Andy your manager approached me and listened for less then a minute about what happened to me and told me that his employees have rights too.. what in the heck does that means ? your employees have the right to run me and my daughter over in front of your store.. Now mind you I wasn’t out in the parking lot I was in the Yellow striped area where you have STOP signs for the cars and he was going to hit us just because he can and your employee and manager feels that I am not owed an apology or at least helping understand why the safety of all people not just employees should be your companies first concern. NOW I have my listening ears on.. please explain..

I have been with winn dixie for almost 33 years. We have seen a lot of changes with the company, but never thought I would quit because I was being over worked while other management making twice as much as me , not trained getting positions because they got the job because of who they now . I had an anixiety attack so I overreacted and quit. Well instead of my boss calling me to see if I was alright he termated me because he already had somebody to take my place. So did he push me so I would break ? Winn dixie is not the same they don’t care about employees . Yes I made a mistake but ask anybody at 1461 in batonrouge if I carried my load they would say yes. I tried to get my job back my boss said the supervisor said no because of the way I walked out. Also another asst. Manager is leaving because of coditions . The moral in this store is so bad . I used to brag this was the first job I had and this is what I get for working my ___ off . Thanks

I shop at the Winn Dixie on 17-92 in Sanford,FL. Great store with great prices, however their gas reward program at first I thought, was a great idea and it would help a lot in this economy but, the shell gas station on Lake Mary Blvd. seems to be taking advantage of the program. They have raised their prices so high that there is no advantage at all to use your gas program savings to buy gas there. I know prices vary daily but, this stations prices are the highest I have seen. At least .14 cents higher for regular than anyone else and believe it or not .40 cents higher for mid-grade. Yesterday they were charging $3.96 a gallon for mid-grade gas. That’s .20 cents higher than anyone else in town. Winn Dixie needs to make a deal with some other gas company then Shell, or at least some other local dealers or their gas rewards program in this area of Florida is all for not.

Dear Sir/ Ma’am:

I just wanted to let you know that every time I attend this Winn Dixie, there are too employees that sticks out like diamonds at your Winn Dixie. I have told the Manager at the store, about one of them (Dave) but I feel it did not make a difference doing a verbal recommendation. I say this because did not feel ‘the love’ when I spoke to the manager about his employee (Caucasion Manager).

FIrst Employee David Lopez (I think Lopez is his last name). This employee works in the seafood (meat) department and his knowledge of seafood is exemplary. Not to mention his courtesy and respect for any customer walking through the door. He always, and I mean always ask anyone if they needed help looking for anything. I personally feel, if there was a management position available he should be trained. I have been going there for years and I always look for Dave. If Dave decides to move on, it would be a loss of a company’s asset.

Second Employee: Elaine in the Bakery/Deli (Trinidadian) I dont know her last name. If it wasnt for Elaine I wouldnt even go to the deli/bakery. I actually never did until she showed up. She makes us (my family), feel warm and fuzzy when we go to this Winn Dixie. My family loves her. My kids will not go to the deli unless Elaine is there. They said only Elaine treats them like a customer and they feel important. That’s nice to hear.

My sadness to this email, is that no one knows. Not even the Managers. I hope this in writing would help these 2 employees on a recognition status because if I was their Manager I sure would recognize them in one or another.

Respectfully,

DR RN, MSN (Combat Nurse, US ARMY Reserves)

Today I went to your crystal river fl location at meadow crest. I had head about a huge sale because the store was transferring to a new location. I drove 20 minutes out of my way to this location only to be stopped and informed by other customers that were clearly upset that the store was already closed. An hour early at that. (9pm) and that they had been stopped in the middle pf their shopping trip and forced to check out. The little girl kept saying that “they hate us” referring to your employees. I wasted time and gas driving to your store and I feel your general manager should have kept the store open until 10 pm as the correct time.I will most definitely avoid all Winn Dixie products from now on. How rude of your employees to treat guests that make their living like garbage..

The reason Publix is beaten you is simple. You think that gas perks alone can win, your fools. I was at the Winn Dixie on the corner of curry ford and goldenrod in Orlando fl. As I walked in some person approach me asking me (what movie do I want), he was selling illegal movies in front of your store. Publix would never allow the to happen on their parking lot. I called the manager and her excuse was, that is not our property, a very amature and unintelligent answer. I like your prices and I like the fuel perks however it’s not worth the hassle. This is the second time I called about the person selling illegal movies in front of your store. This time I called the sheriff department since your managers or directors don’t know the what to do. Your welcome.

When i went to the store a couple of weeks ago the customer service was wonderful and I loved shopping at winn Dixie the sales are great and the feul perks is a huge plus. The cashier sharon was a wonderful and respectful to me always with a smile on her face she put me in a better mood when I left the store I advise you to keep her. She didnt act like she was still in training I watched her interact with the children to help the parents out so the can be less stressful when they are checking out. She was very patient and did everything right. She didn’t even have to call a manager over to do anything.

My wife and I HATE double pricing. It’s nothing more than a scam to force customers to have one of your cards on our key rings or in our wallet. What is the real price????? the lower or upper. I suppose if we submit to a card we’ll save a few pennies but have to give you information in return. Information you will use to fill our computers and mail boxes with yet more junk mail!!! And by the way. The little cards don’t work at the Shell stations. There is only one large card so if we take the wrong car to the gas station —– no discount!!!!!
I suppose your intention is that we should both have a Reward Card Rubbish!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes the little cards on the key chains do work at gas stations if you go inside…my husband and I have been using them for quite some time …it may be a little inconvenient to have to go in the store but yesterday I saves $1.85/gal …it’s worth it to me.

David

First off know what you are talking about and not just spouting off just to be heard. Publix is higher prices than both Wal-Mart and Winn dixie. They use no card and that’s why they have 40 associates in the store at 7 am. You are paying for that. And you actually don’t need the card to get the discount all you need to know is your account number. It’s the 12 or so numbers at the bottom of your little card. You type them in at the gas pump and voila! Gas discounts! So the morale of this story boys and girls is that people only write comments to complain and they have nothing positive to say.

The Pharmacy at Winn Dixie in Palmetto, Florida is a disgrace and a disaster waiting to happen. Customer Service is but non-existent, and none of the drugs prescribed for me were in stock. My Rheumatologist called in a Rx for Lyrica on Tuesday, April 8 in the afternoon. On Thursday afternoon, April 10, my PC doctor called in a Rx for Singulair. Several hours later I went to the pharmacy to inquire about both. Was told that neither drug was in stock and that both were on order and should arrive in a day or so. I asked the Pharmacy tech to please give me the Drug Spec sheet on Lyrica as I was not sure that I wanted to take the drug. She asked me if I wanted a few pills of Lyrica to hold me over until it came in. I told her no and that I just wanted the Spec sheet. On Sunday I called again to inquire about Singulair ETA, and to cancel filling the Rx for Lyrica as there were far too many side effects to suit me after reading the spec sheet. I was told by the PT that Singulair still did not come in but it should arrive some time on Monday. I called again on Monday at 3pm to find out if Singulair came in, and she said it did. On Monday, April 14th at 5:30 PM my husband picked up my Rx on the way home from work because I had to attend a meeting in Sarasota later in the evening. I got home at 9 pm to find out my husband was not given the Singulair Rx, but was given Lyrica which was canceled a few days prior. I can not return the Lyrica of course because once any Rx leaves the pharmacy it can not be returned for safety reasons. I am also out $60 as well for something I will not take and can not return!
First, no one from the Pharmacy ever called me once to let me know that both drugs were on back order or had arrived. I had to initiate every single call and drive there several times. We live over 9 miles from the store. My husband is an HR Manager with Manatee County, and the health plan with the county dictates that we use a very select few pharmacies, yours being one of them.

Second, Lyrica is a controlled substance. I never took the drug before and I never will. However, the PT should not be offering pills to customers of a controlled substance. It’s against the law.

Last, I called your Corporate Offices in Jacksonville and spoke with Josh in Customer Service and told him that I wanted to speak with Pharmacy Director to register a formal complaint. I have yet to hear from anyone in the Corporate Office.
Need I say, the aforementioned would never ever occur with any of your competitors. My husband was the TD Manager for Walgreens in NY and CT and my daughter is a PT. My husband will insure that these incidents are reported to the Benefits Manager with the county. God help the poor soul(s) who do not bother to read the labels on their Rx meds, including side effects.

I am a Registered Pharmacy Tech for the state of Florida, NOT at WD, but somewhere else. We are not allowed to counsel patients. If you have a prescription for a controlled substance, we may offer you a few pills to hold you over if it is out of stock. We can look up controlled substances on the computer and see when you filled you last. In your case, if you have never filled one before for that drug, a long as you have a prescription we may give you some, only if your prescription is within the time span that’s allowed for controlled substances.

I must agree. I was very disappointed to hear that SweetBay was leaving the Venice, FL, area.

Sadly, the stores are a step down in quality, selection, and service.

Image and marketing is awful, and the produce manager was so unqualified that he did not even know the term GMO. I do not expect nuclear physicists there – but Local, Sustainable, Organic, and GMOs are terms and distinctions that I fully expect someone in such a position to be cognizant of.

I would like to offer my services as a consultant – but am sadly afraid that they just do not care.

Winn Dixie in Naples, Florida on Golden Gate Parkway has some of the rudest pharmacists I’ve ever come across. Their checkout clerk at the pharmacy had a bad attitude before I even gave my name. He had a defensive posture and an immediate smirk on his face when I informed him that no I cannot wait an additional four days for my medication and I would need my prescription back. Of course they failed to inform me that they did not have said medication in stock when they were dropped off four hours prior. He said I could either wait until Friday or take the script back. I took it back thinking I could head over to the other Winn Dixie in town or Publix since I sometimes fill there and seems they were both out. I took it back to Winn Dixie today and the same clerk whispered in the pharmacist’s ear and suddenly their policy is that they cannot hold scripts if they do not have them in stock. Funny, how I’ve been able to drop them off before at other pharmacies. I’ve been on the same medication for over 3 years and its unbelievable how pharmacists seem to think that their name has and “M.D” after it. I can’t wait for my regular pharmacist to get Medicaid straightened out, he’s a wonderful person and he has never made me feel this way. I cannot wait to tell him how horrible these people are. Not to mention the store is dirty, most employees don’t speak English, the employees chase each other around in motorized carts, their vegetables are often rotten and same with the meat. Oh and he really should go brush those teeth. I’m an RDH, perhaps he should come see me? =) Jerks.

1. There is not enough people to work in the store located at us 1 and Sunrise in Fort Lauderdale. I had to walk out and leave my groceries at the deli counter, the lines are too long , the employees are stressed out.

2. How greedy is Winn Dixie and the executives to have the stores open till 9pm on Christmas Eve, 2013. That’s really disgusting, I think Winn Dixie is greedy and treats their employees like slaves and low pay.

I said ok, and I was hired at the end of the interview, so I guess I made a good impression.My first day was 10/01/2013. I worked 13 hours in the first pay period, and 9 hours in the next. I made a few mistakes on the register during those 4 days, but I had no cashiering experience.I guess new hires are not allowed any errors.When the line backed up on football gamedays, the other register was not opened because”people wait at CVS too”.Great way to treat me, a veteran & a senior citizen.

Since when is it okay for DM’s to take vender tickets for football games and take 2 store managers with him to the games??? I thought it was against company policy and shows favoritism. You might want to look into the Gainesville area. I know store managers that have been fired for accepting vender tickets at Winn Dixie stores. My advice to those people is get a lawyer because the Gainesville DM is accepting vender tickets.

I have shopped at Winn-Dixie for many years and for the most part been happy there. But lately I have not been . I can’t seem to get service in the deli. No one wants to slice meat. If they don’t want to then they should get a job doing something else. I am sick of bad attitudes. I am taking it personal. I left one store and went to another one and still get the same treatment. Next week I will go to Publix and give them a try. I have never bought my groceries there before but I am willing to see if they will treat me better. I shopped in Wetumpka, Al and then at Eastdale in Montgomery, Al. All I wanted was some roast beef sliced. I don’t think that was asking too much. Do you?

the department (cust service) has a sign closed from 9 PM on, and no
transaction will be made including lottery (lottery in Fl. Close
at 10:30 PM)..I complained to the clrrk, how a whole dept is closed when the store
close at 11:00PM. The clerk said new rules.,In fact a day or two before
Same thing happened to me and complained to the Mgr. (Actually he was in
Office) and told him how could that be when there are two more hours of operation
Left. He said that it should not be close just “scratch off” and someting else but not the machine until lotto closed operation. I agreed! He made the clerk re opened.
Today the whole thing was closed., lotto scratch off cigarretes youname it and three employees hanging around.
Now I see why WD filed for bankruptcy in the past just imaging that you gross just $100 a nighthat $36500 a year x all the store you .that a ,lot of dough, even for
WD and on top of that the payroll expenses for idled workers and so many disgusted customer like me (I spend 2 to 2.5k a year at this store.I have to drive

I went home and grabed my magnifying glass, then return back to the store in hopes that I would be able to finally read the expiration dates. . Memorial Day weekend all packages of bread Winn Dixie products red april 5th 7th or 8th. I brought this to the attention of a young lady at the customer care desk. the employe rest assured me that she would bring this to the attention of the store manager. guess what ladies and gentlemen out there in the world; packages remained on the shelves of approximately 60 70. this is one of several types of products that falls into this situation.

What happened ? Ya’ll used to be a GREAT store . I’ve been a customer since the early 50’s and have had to switch stores over and over again after you change managers and screw a store up . Nobody in Baton Rouge , La. knows the # of your Joor Rd. store and the phonebook lists the fax # for store # and some other store managers won’t even look it up . Real customer service . I drove 40 miles to buy a large quantity of meat and Joor Rd. store had hardly any on the shelf and the packages they did have were tiny . Are you TRYING to go out of business ? Is there a day when you get meat and poor planning allowed the Joor rd. store to run out ? Are they just to lazy to put more out ? Ya’ll lost out on a $250.00 minimum sale but then again it seems like you could care less . I’ll be looking for a new place to shop in the near future and will encourage my friends to do the same .

Leon Gaither May 30, 2013 at 1:21 pm

My name is Leon Gaither and I live on the east side of Orlando. On Sunday 26 of May 2013 I went to the Winn Dixie at Waterford Lakes #2270 and due to what I experienced there this will be the last time that I will shop at a Winn Dixie. Earlier in the week I had shopped at another Winn Dixie and bought some groceries. On the way home a bag that the items were in developed a hole and a bottle of wine fell out of the bag and broke. I collected it and with the receipt went to the above mentioned store to see if it could be replaced. I didn’t know what the policy was but I know that if I had gone to Publix they would have replaced the item. The young lady I spoke to when I entered the store told me she would have to check with her manager, a Danny Padilla. After a minute he came out of his office and the first thing out of his mouth was “I will do it this time but I won’t do it again.” Struck me as odd, no pleasantries, no thank you for shopping at Winn Dixie, nothing. I asked him what did he meant? He replied it is not our policy to replace, once you leave the store it is on you. Go get your item and bring it back up to the front. Then he repeated that he would only do this this one time. So now I am about to walk out of the store but I am there, I need some other things, he’s got some issues, we will move on. After getting the other things, mind you I have a basket full of stuff and I am heading to the check out. I pass by Danny and he comes at me once again and says “You could have told me you bought the thing at another store.” Now I am pissed, why couldn’t he have let it go, or again, thank you for shopping at Winn Dixie, come again. And what really got me was he says again “I will only do this this one time.” I said” Listen man, if you don’t want to do it don’t do it.” He says I don’t want to do it. Now as a veteran of the United States army I know that I served to protect the rights of people to act and say what they want, but this got to me. I have been a rewards customer at this store for over 10 years, back when all the stores were run down, shopped there even over the protests of my wife and family who prefer Publix, and I will tell you I will never shop at another Winn Dixie ever again. I was subjected to this type of treatment over something as menial as this? Get real.

I had sent this complaint to the customer service link on your website which says that I would receive a response within 48 hours and I still have not received anything.

Whistle Blower Store 0367

During my tenure with Winn Dixie, I have been a loyal and dedicated employee. I have always acted in the company’s best interest. I believe that all associates contribute to the success of Winn Dixie. Stores should seek to promote an environment that is professional, supportive of all teamwork and trust. Over the past years, I became aware and have observed of certain conducts and practices that violate company’s policies. I am providing you with these observations with the knowledge that I feel compelled to bring it to your attention. Among many issues:

· Conflict of interest (employee Savannah) lives in store manager’s house and dating her son. In addition, husband works for wine company that delivers wine in store.

· Belittled employees in store= Addressed employee utilizing foul languages, and fought employee when there’s a difference of opinion.

· Unprofessionalism= Employees are not treated with dignity and respect.

· Unethical= disrespectfulness, backstabbing, gossiping

· Complex Inferiority= Store manager feels superior to everyone in the store. Annoyed by lack of cooperation, poor teamwork, bullying or verbal abuse.

· Store Communication= No communication because employees have fears of being sent home, or fired.

· Company’s Assets misused= Markdowns are done where store manager and close buddies get first choice. Carts of merchandise purchased for the purpose of paying less.

. Denied promotions to blacks in favor of whites.

In conclusion, please acknowledge my kindness in the best manner for I take no pleasure in doing this. It has taken me years to build up the courage. After 20 years plus as a dedicated employee, Winn Dixie is my home and a career. I love my job and I love what I do. It is not an easy decision to make. But it is the right decision to make. It is a sad reality that these types of behavior still exit in today’s work environment.

I agree 100% with everything you have just wrote. I also had the same issues with the Winn Dixie I worked at 0463. My manager was very disrespectful, unprofessional, and quick to fire and send any home. I worked at Winn Dixie for 2 1/2 years and as soon as this guy started working there I experienced and witnessed a lot of unnecessary work issues. Whenever my manager had an issue with me he would talk to me about it in the office, and the next time I worked I would find out that he told half the work team about me in a negative way. Managers are not suppose to gossip and be messy. They also should not keep picking on other employees just because of their title.I had to deal with this unprofessional for a while now and it has made my work experience there hell. I do not even like to shop at Winn Dixie anymore just because I know he is there running things.

For several years I’ve planned my weekly Winn-Dixie grocery shopping trip to take advantage of the wonderful fish filet plates in the deli. The crisp delicate fish filets, hushpuppies, baby limas and fried okra!! Last week I was so dissapointee because you have changed the type of fish you are using. The fish had a very strong taste and was not good. This morning I went by the deli and when they asked could they help me I asked the lady if they had change their fish they are using, and she said yes. Needless to say, I had to tell her that I would not be buying lunch there, unless they change back to the fish Winn-Dixie had used for years. I try to be a loyal customer, but I may start buying my groceries elsewhere. Please consider my request to change back to the light delicate fish that actually taste good!!!

3/19/13 I had occasion to shop at WD today. At the check out line, with a light on, a woman in front of me had the belt filled with her selections. I was 2nd in line, and a gentleman came up behind me. We stood and stood, and no cashier came to check us out! We stood for perhaps 3-4 minutes! Finally the other gentleman & I went to the self-check out, which I despise, and as we were leaving, the woman was STILL waiting for a cashier! These are the things that send your customers to Publix! I have had so many bad occasions with WD that I cannot count them all! Mostly employee failures. I do not like the new store either with all the signs & banners everywhere. It cheapens the Co. as does the new advertising and cluttered aisles. The man behind me voiced exactly my feelings, “not to shop at WD at all”. I feel welcome at Publix. It is clean, orderly AND the employees go out of their way to help and be friendly. You had better hire “secret shoppers” to give you an account of the day to day operations as seen by the customer!
