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 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

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.
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.
