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.

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.


Ty September 19, 2015 at 5:17 pm

I’m a part time employee at Winn Dixie. I was told by my scheduling manager I wasn’t allowed to request 12/24-12/25 off due to holiday “rules” as a part timer I’m very sure I’m aloud to request off holidays especially 4 months before the holiday itselfs. What can be done about this?!?


nye September 16, 2015 at 5:11 pm

Store #0226 has roaches, outdated food on shelves and spoiled meat!!! The store is old and outdated and needs to be shut down!!! I will be contacting the health department in reference to these matters. I am currently an employee at this location and i purchased hamburger meat that was spoiled and it caused me to be sick for 3 days. They don’t give you enough hours to even pay your phone bill i think this company sucks!!!


Leslie September 3, 2015 at 9:43 pm

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.


CL July 28, 2015 at 10:53 pm

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.


robbin Daniels July 18, 2015 at 11:33 pm

I was banned from the wetumpka al store by mr. Hodges because I complained to much on one of employees for following me around after she said I stole something which I didn’t. When I called they said they would go over hodges instead only went to him . So one day after enough I said something to her and then he said never to come back in his store since he couldn’t please me. He never said anything to the employee

07/11/2015- I just finished shopping in the bi-los store in Belmont N.C, My Husband and I spent over 100.00 in groceries. The cashier was so RUDE that we were not acknowledge in any form,not HI or Thankyou. My Husband and I work hard for our money ,I could have went to Aldi’s or Walmart but I came to BI-LO for local produce. I have worked in the customer service industry for over twenty years and the way we were treated was unacceptable,Please! take care of this issue.CUSTOMER SERVICE in any Business Is NO# One


Vendor July 9, 2015 at 1:12 pm

The DSD(receiver) at WD 141- Christa is her name, needs to be fired! She is very rude to people, yells, talks unprofessional about others. She has a horrible reputation where nobody even likes going to that store!! Corporate- if you guys want to fix problems, here’s a great start!!


roberta July 8, 2015 at 7:18 pm

please i want you guys to take a look at winn dixie on tampa fl store number 2659. i dont like the way the treating employer


Creig Roberts June 8, 2015 at 2:32 pm

I am impressed. Your company doesn’t require background checks of people you hire?? Your new employee, Douglas Wagner at your Anniston store was fired from our company, loves travel stop for sexually harassing his employees. There is video proof for these accusations. You may contact me at 740-506-****
Or the corporate office at 1-800-ok-loves


Creig Roberts June 8, 2015 at 5:06 pm

When calling the corporate office, you may ask for Marsha Williams.
This is my best effort at saving another company the troubles we’ve gone through. It is also my understanding that his previous employer Five Below, also terminated Mr. Wagner after speaking with our corporate headquarters.


Steven McKechnie May 27, 2015 at 1:03 pm

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.

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.


Memunatu Tejan-Cole May 20, 2015 at 11:23 pm

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.


rick rufo May 18, 2015 at 9:24 am

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.


Janis Lax May 7, 2015 at 1:50 pm

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… guessed it… 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-,


Holly leptien April 26, 2015 at 1:24 pm

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


Kelley July 29, 2015 at 11:59 am

” 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.


HJB March 30, 2015 at 8:24 pm

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 (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.


Not Surprised January 20, 2015 at 5:31 pm

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.


BI LO = The Cracker Jack Team – “attention to detail is NOT what we’re about!”

tina January 16, 2015 at 7:02 am

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.


Naomi baum January 7, 2015 at 10:04 am

I shop at one if your stores #0386,,,,you staff there are totally rude and unacceptable and your store manager who I sopkee to was just as rude, no body no matter if theyy are right are wrong can be spoken to the way I was spoken to. There are a lot of old people who frequent that store and I have heard many of them takes to rudely. They certainly don’t get rules in manners because no one there hass any. I am passing on my story to others and only hope you improve who u hire there I. The future. ThaNking. You in advance and I de expect an email back asap..


shelby thompson December 20, 2014 at 2:44 pm

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.
Sincerely Shelby Thompson.


holly November 28, 2014 at 8:55 pm

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.


Cam February 20, 2015 at 1:37 pm

Are you still employed with them


Jazzmyn Francis November 26, 2014 at 4:26 pm

So they basically told me that they can fire me for any reason if they have someone else in mind for the position.


Jazzmyn Francis November 26, 2014 at 4:18 pm

So today I lost my job for having house slippers on while being off the clock and not scheduled to work. Amazing right? Yeah I know.
