Let Winn-Dixie know you want them to stay

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, June 29, 2005

As we reported last Wednesday, the local Winn-Dixie store is slated to close if a buyer is not found on Aug. 20.

After chatting with a Winn-Dixie marketing associate, it was said that community involvement could save this longtime grocery store here in Butler County.

So here is what we propose.

Write letters to the corporate office; call the corporate office.

Don't talk to the local management, go to the corporate level. Go to the people who make the decisions and let them know that you want Winn-Dixie to stay in Greenville.

You can reach them at 1-866-946-6349 or via mail at Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. 5050 Edgewood Court, Jacksonville, FL 32254. You can also make your thoughts known at www.winndixie.com.
