To keep its push into Florida going, Southeastern Grocers, parent of Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, will introduce a new Palm Beach County Winn-Dixie location in the town of Westlake.
SEG will use a specialized approach to the store to provide fresh concepts and extensive offerings, along with additional jobs and opportunities for local community members, it stated. The Westlake debut will continue SEG’s Sunshine State expansion, which included openings in St. Augustine Shores and Viera locations last year. SEG opened eight new Winn-Dixie stores in 2020 in Boynton Beach, Fort Myers, Gainesville, Lakewood Ranch, Lake Mary, West Melbourne and two locations in Jacksonville. SEG opened two stand-alone WDs Wine, Beer and Liquor in Jacksonville as well.
Anthony Hucker, president and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said, “As we begin a new year, we are continuing our commitment to expansion throughout our home state of Florida. The retail landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade, and we believe now is the time to bolster our presence in Palm Beach County and introduce our newest store in Florida’s newest city. We look forward to being a store our Westlake community can always count on for years to come.”
