Grocery Store Now Makes A Surprising Closure Leading to Sales

A grocery store now makes a surprising closure, leading to sales of up to 50% off as shoppers prepare for another supermarket takeover.

Winn Dixie is closing its location in Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans, Louisiana, followed by a takeover.

The closure is happening because Aldi bought all Winn-Dixie and other stores owned by Southeastern Grocers Inc., including Harveys Supermarkets, in August, per The US Sun.

The final date to shop is July 7, an employee confirmed to the outlet.

In the meantime, customers can enjoy sales of up to 50% off, per reports.

The Winn Dixie in Metairie will be replaced by an Aldi following a period of renovations.

“As we work through this transition period, conversion plans are still being finalized and we will share more information as it becomes available,” Meredith Hurley, Southeastern Grocers’ senior director for communications and community, said in a statement to NOLA.com.

Once open, it will be Aldi’s 16th store in Louisiana.

Aldi is in the process of taking over and adding 800 new stores in the South.

In March, officials at the store said about 50 locations would begin the conversion process during the latter half of 2024.

The majority of these stores will reopen as Aldi in 2025.

However, not everyone is happy that their Winn Dixie is being replaced by a new store.

“I tried Aldi when they first opened on Vets and I wasn’t impressed,” wrote one in a local Facebook group.

“No bags, need a quarter to operate a shopping cart and the prices weren’t much different from everyone else.

Not seeing much of a reason to go there.”

“Really don’t care for Aldi. It’s boring,” said another.

A third wrote: “Aldi does not have as many selections as Winn Dixie. I find Winn Dixie to have better deals too.”

However, others did share their excitement about the arrival of the Aldi.

“This is GREAT NEWS,” wrote one.

“Aldi is much cheaper and has a different array of products.”

‘I get $100 worth of things from Winn Dixie and get the same stuff from Aldi for $50. I love Aldi,” another commented.

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.
