Re: The ever shrinking Winn-Dixie

It has been FOREVER since I logged in here but I did get an e-mail alert of recent posts. Of Course since I last posted here Winn Dixie was gobbled up by Bi-Lo and the combined company is today known as "Bi-Lo holdings" with Bi Lo moving their headquarters to Winn Dixie's facility in Jacksonville. T...

Re: Macon Georgia area History (Colonial-a&p and others)

Thanks for sharing that post card!

The hotel today is a Holdiay Inn Express. The resturant in front is now vacant but was an upscale Italian restaurant for many years. And the shopping center, while it was slightly remodeled is pretty much vacant.

Re: Albany, GA - Southgate Plaza

I didn't realize that it was over 3 months since I last visited this site. Sorry for the delay in answering this post. I don't have official confirmation about this location but based on "newer" retail locations very close by this shopping center and a look inside a 1970's Albany phone book, there w...

Re: Food Lion divisions

I should update from my previous post of 2 years ago. There are more Harvey's locations in the Middle Georgia area as there is a new store in Macon (the first of the Harvey's brand) on Shurling Drive. They renovated the interior of a former Piggly Wiggly/Foodmax/Bi-LO. The Piggly Wiggly closed in th...

Re: The ever shrinking Winn-Dixie

This was discussed on a local website regarding the two Georgia Winn-Dixie stores slated for closure. http://www.13wmaz.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=84428&catid=175 On the message board for the article one commentor said that I didn't know what I was talking about.

The ever shrinking Winn-Dixie

July 28, 2010, Winn Dixie announces the closure of 30 "Underperforming" stores. This includes two stores close to where I live in Central Georgia that are each far from the remaining core markets where Winn-Dixie still maintains a presence. (My notes about store location in blue ) The list of stores...

The location on Gray Highway in East Macon was a Farmer's Furnature store for decades but was recently renovated as a Save-A-Lot. And they are currently restoring a former gym in Warner Robins GA which was orig...

Re: New York area: Waldbaums (Safeway?)

I was just inside the Associated supermarket that replaced the former Pathmark/waldbaums. I was in the store on August 16th and other than new "Associated" market sinage, the interior is doesn't seem any different than the former Pathmark which I was in on another visit to NY earlier this year shopp...

Re: *Photo*Questions About Former A&P Location In Roswell?

When Publix took over so many former A&P stores they more than likely completely demolished and replaced the building. The store in this thred definitely looks like a rebuild. The Publix at Ansley Mall in Atlanta was an A&P that I know was completely demolshed and rebuilt. That store closed very sho...

They have a lease with the owner till 2019 but if they cannot find someone to sub lease it too, it will stay empty till then. I was visting my Aunt for her 83rd birthday May 31st and I d...

Re: The Atlanta Kroger they forgot to remodel

The Food Bazaar was Winn-Dixie, which was unaltered most of its life. I believe it closed in the first Atlanta round of closings in 2000 that preceded the conversion to Save Rite. It was bascially unaltered most of its life and had a decor similar to a Kroger superstore, if somewhat less detailed a...
