An Unexpected Grocery Store is Now Closing in Alabama

An unexpected grocery store is now closing in Alabama in just a few weeks, leading the company to start liquidation sales.

A Winn Dixie in Northport, Alabama – around 60 miles from Birmingham – is set to close on July 28th, per a local outlet.

Located at the intersection of McFarland Boulevard and Watermelon Road, the grocer will be remodeled into an Aldi after the German grocer purchased the brand.

Aldi announced it would acquire the Winn Dixie brand last summer, and the purchase was completed this March.

The Northport Winn Dixie will reopen as the area’s third Aldi in early 2025.

Leading up to the store’s closure, the grocer is offering shoppers discounts on the inventory it has left.

Most items were listed at 10 to 15% off on July 8, but some products are up to 40% off, per The US Sun.

Shelves will not be restocked, so shoppers should head to the Winn Dixie soon for the largest selection.

Shoppers at the new Aldi can look forward to a budget-friendly, curated selection of goods, reports the outlet.

One stay-at-home mother shared how Aldi has helped her affordably feed her two sons and how the grocer is “always a win on a budget.”

In a TikTok video, the mom shared several items that are cheaper at Aldi than at Walmart.

She compared the prices of items such as Kings Hawaiian Rolls, shredded rotisserie chicken, linguine, butter, and chicken breast.

At Walmart, she cited the price of the rolls as $4.48 but only $2.67 at Aldi.

An Aldi brand dupe for Goldfish costs $3.95, while a large box of Goldfish at Walmart would run shoppers $8.88.

The shopper also noted how chicken breast at Walmart cost $9.89 while at Aldi it would only cost $6.36.

The TikToker estimated that her total at Walmart would have come out to $57.63.

At Aldi, however, she only paid $37.15.

The mother saved around $20 by sticking with the German grocer.

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
