Winn-Dixie only closing one Louisiana store

Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of several brands including Winn-Dixie grocery stores, confirmed Thursday afternoon it is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. As part of this restructuring, we have made the hard but necessary decision to close 94 underperforming stores.

Southeastern Grocers, which owns grocery store chain Winn-Dixie, announced plans to file for bankruptcy and close almost 100 stores. He did not give specifics about the sales but said they will have deals similar to other big stores that have closed.

"I have to go all the way up to Norman to Winn-Dixie or Walmart", said Taylor, who noted that she plans to continue shopping at her favorite Harveys until it's no longer an option. It said it intends to file with the bankruptcy court by the end of March.

The closure of the Mandeville Winn-Dixie marks the second major retailer in the city to announce its closing within the past few months. Officials reported in a news release they expect the company to emerge through financial restructuring within the 90 days.

Reorganization will allow the company to shed around $500 million in debts.
