Joining in the celebration of Veterans Day, Southeastern Grocers yesterday celebrated the opening of four Winn-Dixie supermarkets in Florida.
The new stores are located in Boynton Beach, Gainesville, Jacksonville, and Lakewood Ranch, SEG said in a statement.
In recognition of Veterans Day, Winn-Dixie, together with the SEG Gives Foundation, donated a combined $80,000 to veteran-related initiatives, including $25,000 to support local veteran organizations within the new stores’ communities, $30,000 to Folds of Honor to provide six scholarships to the children of disabled and fallen service members, and another $25,000 donation to Folds of Honor in partnership with Maxwell House.
Anthony Hucker, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said in a statement, “We are beyond excited to unveil our four new Winn-Dixie stores to the wonderful communities of Boynton Beach, Gainesville, Jacksonville, and Lakewood Ranch. We are proud to provide our customers with a shopping experience that is uniquely crafted for their community. At Southeastern Grocers, giving back to our communities is in our DNA, and with our grand openings occurring on Veterans Day, we are proud to recognize the men and women who served our country in the most admirable way. We have immense gratitude for those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom, and we look forward to showing all of our new neighbors they can always count on us.”
