I have never been in a Winn Dixie--not sure I have ever even seen one.

Winn-Dixie currently operates 485 stores in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, and Mississippi. The company has had its present name since 1955 and traces its roots back to 1925.

Prior to filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2005, Winn-Dixie was listed in the S&P 500 and had been traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "WIN" since February 18, 1952. The company was traded under the symbol "WINN" on the NASDAQ before its purchase. The bankruptcy also left the chain with fewer stores than it had in the late 1960s.

They are known for their private label Chek brand soft drinks, which are produced in over 20 different flavors plus diet and caffeine-free varieties—one of the widest assortments. They have also been known as "The Beef People". In its advertising and print media Winn-Dixie now uses the brand promises of "Fresh Checked Every Day" in its Jacksonville DMA, "Getting Better All The Time" in its locations in Central Florida, "El Sabor De Tu Pais", or "The Flavor Of Your Country", in its Miami area stores, and "Local Flavor Since 1956" in its Louisiana area stores. Winn-Dixie is also known for their slogan in Florida, "Beef, it's what's for dinner."

On December 19, 2011, BI-LO, another Southeastern supermarket chain, announced plans to purchase Winn-Dixie. On March 9, 2012, Winn-Dixie became a wholly owned subsidiary of BI-LO Holding and Winn-Dixie's ticker symbol was removed from the NASDAQ.[5] BI-LO Holdings announced at the time of acquisition that the merged company will be based in Winn-Dixie's former headquarters in Jacksonville. BI-LO had previously been based in Greenville, South Carolina.

Impressive. You're like a supermarket historian. :D :D :D

I don't know what y'all are complaining about, I like the south. It's like Oregon with less hippies and more bugs. Turns out the bugs don't like me. Except fire ants... They like me...
But mosquitoes, chiggers and all that don't. When we were back in the states still my platoon mates would ask how I could sleep outside and not in a sleeping bag with all the bugs, I'm just lucky I guess.
Same thing happened at my father in law's farm in Illinois.
He who wears the cloth, will always wear the cloth, and those that wear the cloth will always have a brother in me.

Mosquitos would use me like an aircraft carrier if given the chance. :oops:

I am not a bug magnet. Typically, I only have to worry about an occasional mosquito bothering me, especially if my son or husband are with me. They are the bug candy.

Years ago I took a medicine that had a sulfur component, they have not liked me very much since.
I mean they will bite me but only if there is no one else to go after.
Also they like people from out of state better than locals.

They eat my wife alive. The instant she steps outside they attack.
Like Bob, I get bit if nobody else is around.
