Say hello to Winn-Dixie


Some Tampa Bay area Sweetbay supermarkets have begun converting to Winn-Dixie stores after the parent company of Winn-Dixie recently purchased the Sweetbay chain from its parent company, Delhaize America. Stores are being shut down for about a week to complete the transformation, including restocking shelves and rearranging aisles. Above, a new Winn-Dixie sign is installed Wednesday on what used to be a Sweetbay at 2139 34th St. N in St. Petersburg. At left, Winn-Dixie employees watch as Scott Nangle, far right, sets up a sign Thursday over the end of an aisle in the old Sweetbay location at 7491 Fourth St. N in St. Petersburg.
