More compact, brighter Winn-Dixie opens near Boynton Beach front in hard work to revive brand name

BOYNTON Beach — A new-appear Winn-Dixie supermarket opened its doorways Wednesday early morning at the Cobblestone Browsing Center west of Boynton Beach front at Lyons Highway and Boynton Beach Boulevard.  

The retail outlet was comprehensive of prospects at 9:30 a.m. as they have been greeted with the audio of songs performed by a DJ. The parking good deal outside the house Winn-Dixie was packed, and there was a sizeable sum of foot website traffic at Cobblestone, something that has been missing since Earth Fare, the grocer that used to operate out of the web-site, shut down previous March.   

“We are thrilled to see anyone operating the grocery store once again,” mentioned Chris Connolly, typical supervisor of Very first Observe, a breakfast-and-lunch restaurant close to Winn-Dixie. “It will no question carry us far more company.”

Each and every buying plaza requirements an anchor tenant, say Cobblestone retailers, and the lack of 1 given that March has been a issue. 

A tour Tuesday morning as staff members stocked cabinets in preparing for the opening indicated the new retail store will not be a regular Winn-Dixie. 

At 24,800-square toes, the new notion shop is fewer than fifty percent the dimensions of a standard grocery store. Jorge Cabo, regional vice president of Southeastern Grocers, the parent enterprise of Winn-Dixie, claimed the more compact shop is developed to make use of just about every sq. foot. As opposed to at Earth Fare, there is no sit-down area to consume food items.

“There just was not ample area to do that,” he pointed out.
