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 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.

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

Seriously guys?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
