Southeastern Grocers Inc. (SEG), the parent company and home of Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket, and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, introduced a new Winn-Dixie store to the rapidly growing Grand Cypress neighborhood in St. Johns County. This new store, in a suburb of its hometown of Jacksonville, is the first of three new Winn-Dixie stores the grocer is opening to support economic growth in its communities.
The company stated that SEG’s Grand Cypress Winn-Dixie store and forthcoming stores in Jacksonville’s College Park neighborhood and Central Florida’s Apopka City Center showcase the grocer’s commitment to supporting, elevating, and growing its communities by providing value in deep savings on high-quality products in a convenient shopping experience, as well as its investment in local economies through the creation of hundreds of jobs.
“Our goal is to positively impact our local communities through service, both inside and outside our stores. While we pride ourselves on offering a remarkable shopping experience for our customers, we’re also committed to being the grocer our customers and associates can always count on. With the investment of our new stores throughout our home state of Florida, we look forward to supporting the growth and betterment of our communities and providing our customers with quality products at an affordable price so they don’t have to compromise when it comes to nourishing their families,” said Anthony Hucker, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers.

The grocer recently launched its online shopping and delivery service, offering customers the same promotions, savings, and prices found in stores with the convenience of delivery in as little as two hours. SEG will expand delivery to its Fresco y Más customers and roll out convenient curbside pickup beginning in early 2023.
SEG earned recognition for excellence in developing its own brand products and commitment to quality and consumer satisfaction. The Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA) awarded three products from SEG’s Prestige line with Salute to Excellence Awards, including White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, Butter Toffee Sticky Cakes, and Organic Chili Flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oil. More than 50 North American retailers submitted nearly 750 products for consideration.
