Point Meadows Winn-Dixie to add separate liquor store

Share

Southeastern Grocers LLC’s remodeled Winn-Dixie store in Baymeadows will come with another feature — a liquor store next door.

An adjacent company-owned liquor store isn’t unusual with supermarkets and wholesale clubs, but in this case, it’s another feature revealed for the renovated Winn-Dixie.

The Winn-Dixie and liquor store are being remodeled at 10915 Baymeadows Road, although Southeastern Grocers has not said what the grocery store will look like or what amenities it might offer.

“We’re continuing to refine and finalize our plans and look forward to unveiling these remodeled locations to the community in 2016,” said Southeastern Grocers spokesman Zack Bingham in a statement Tuesday.

As Southeastern Grocers remodels the supermarket, it also has leased space for the liquor store that formerly was rented by other tenants, including the Cuts by Us hair salon. The salon has relocated within the Point Meadows shopping center.

“Our customers are at the center of every decision we make and whenever possible, we prefer to combine our grocery stores with a liquor store offering to provide greater convenience,” said Bingham, senior director of public relations.

Jacksonville-based Southeastern Grocers owns the Winn-Dixie brand, which it acquired in 2012.

Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. closed the Point Meadows store in 2010 in a cost-cutting move after operating there seven years. The company has a long-term lease at the site.

The supermarket renovation permit, issued in November, calls for a $3 million remodeling of the almost 46,000-square-foot supermarket.

The company separately is renovating 2,856 square feet of space for the liquor store. Plans show a $344,000 interior demolition of the beauty shop and salon seating and sinks. Office space and a large cooler are also shown on those plans.

The liquor store is taking two units, comprising the former hair salon at No. 123 and a former Verizon store at No. 122, which has been vacant for at least several months.

The liquor store is accessed separately from Winn-Dixie. There is no interior connection because Florida law requires liquor stores be separate facilities.
