Bi-Lo to convert three Winn-Dixie locations to Harveys

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Bi-Lo Holdings, parent company of Bi-Lo, Harveys and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, on June 7 began to rebrand three Winn-Dixie stores as Harveys stores in Albany, Ga.

The stores will be closed through June 13, but to ensure prescription needs are met, the Winn-Dixie pharmacies will operate during normal business hours throughout the conversion. 

"Upon reopening as a Harveys, customers will be pleased to see the same smiling faces they have known for years as well as daily in-store savings programs from Harveys," said Jimmy Purvis, Harveys' regional VP. "Plus, we will continue to offer traditional Winn-Dixie in-store savings programs, like the fuelperks! fuel reward program, which lets customers earn incredible gas savings every time they shop with their Harveys Hometown Rewards Key."

Similarly, the rebranded stores will continue to offer a prescription plan with more than 400 generic medications for $4 for a 30-day supply, $10 for a 90-day supply and several antibiotic medications at no cost. 

"As we marry the best offerings from Winn-Dixie with the best of Harveys, we believe our customers will be very happy with the outcome," Purvis said. 

In February, Bi-Lo Holdings received approval from the Federal Trade Commission to proceed with the transaction in which Bi-Lo Holdings will acquire substantially all of the stores in the Sweetbay, Harveys and Reid's supermarket chains from Delhaize.
