Over the past two months, Bi-Lo has revealed 13 newly updated stores across the Carolinas, with donations of more than $19,000 to community organizations on behalf of Bi-Lo charities, the grocer announced Wednesday.
Bi-Lo and Coca-Cola on Tuesday announced their partnership with the USO to support its Operation Phone Home program, which connects troops deployed overseas with their families back home through, among other things, a private phone network.
Bi-Lo has announced that it has successfully completed its merger with Winn-Dixie Stores. The two banners now will be subsidiaries of privately held parent company Bi-Lo Holding. Bi-Lo and Winn-Dixie will continue to operate under the same banners, and the company does not expect any store closures as a result of the merger.
The proposed acquisition of Winn-Dixie by fellow Southeast grocer Bi-Lo would create a regional pharmacy operator with almost 500 pharmacy operations and pharmacy revenue of around $780 million, according to Drug Store News projections.
Bi-Lo and Winn-Dixie Stores on Monday announced that the companies will merge to create an organization of approximately 690 grocery stores and 63,000 employees in eight states throughout the southeastern United States.
