The Jacksonville-based chain will relocate along San Jose Boulevard to the closed Earth Fare market space.
Jacksonville-based Southeastern Grocers Inc. announced Oct. 12 it will open its new Mandarin Winn-Dixie store Nov. 11.
The store is a converted Earth Fare at 11700 San Jose Blvd. Winn-Dixie is moving across the street from a 51,282-square-foot store at 11701 San Jose Blvd. in the Merchants Shopping Center of Mandarin.
The new store in the Mandarin South Shopping Center is smaller at 28,000 square feet. Winn-Dixie said previously the current store will close by Nov. 1 depending on how quickly it sells inventory.
Winn-Dixie also converted closed Earth Fare stores in Boynton Beach and Lakewood Ranch and a former Lucky’s Market in Gainesville.
Southeastern Grocers said Oct. 12 that it will introduce signature categories in the new stores.
“We’ve expanded our product assortments in these new stores to ensure our customers have fresh, quality products at the right price for every meal,” said Anthony Hucker, Southeastern Grocers president and CEO, in the news release.
Amenities include full-service meat departments, seafood departments, bakery selections and specialty foods for dietary preferences, including expanded organic, natural and gluten-free options.
The new Mandarin store will not have a pharmacy. Southeastern Grocers said previously that current prescriptions will be confidentially transferred to the nearby pharmacies.
