BY Allison Cerra

ST. JOHNS, Fla. — Just one week after opening a remodeled store in Apopka, Fla., Winn-Dixie has opened another reformatted store in St. Johns, making it the company’s first overhauled location in the North Florida area.

The renovated Winn-Dixie features an expanded grocery department, as well as a deli serving restaurant-quality entrees and side dishes, the retailer said.

The “transformational” remodeled Winn-Dixie store is the first in North Florida and fifth overall, Winn-Dixie noted, adding that the company plans to open 17 stores with similar formats in the coming year. Each store will cost about $5.5 million.

“This store exemplifies our commitment to the fast-growing northwest St. Johns County area and serves as a one-stop grocery destination catering to the needs, tastes and preferences of the surrounding community,” Winn-Dixie regional VP Dan Lafever said. “We are excited to deliver on our promise of providing our guests with a fresh, new shopping experience that is fun and imaginative.”

BY Michael Johnsen

PASSAIC, N.J. — Fairy Tales Hair Care on Wednesday announced the launch of its first iPhone application, The Facts of Lice, to provide real-time alerts of lice outbreaks at the local level.

"With 85% of school districts reporting head lice, busy parents need to be informed about outbreaks in their own communities as quickly as possible," stated Risa Barash, founder of Fairy Tales Hair Care. "The Facts of Lice app allows parents to track lice outbreaks in their own neighborhood so they’ll know when it’s time to increase prevention efforts at home."

The app provides parents with a centralized database for outbreak notifications, as well as the tools needed to prevent, combat and report outbreaks. Locations are organized by state and zip code.
