Winn-Dixie parent company declares bankruptcy, closing Gainesville and Ocala stores


Winn-Dixie's parent company on Thursday announced it will file for bankruptcy and close 94 stores, including one in Gainesville and two in Ocala.

Jacksonville-based Southeastern Grocers said it's implementing "a court-supervised, prepackaged" debt restructuring agreement. It said it intends to file with the bankruptcy court by the end of March. The company said the restructuring will reduce its debt by more than $500 million. The 94 store closures are in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Thirty-six of the stores are in Florida. The Gainesville store is on 34th Street. The Ocala stores are on Northwest Blitchton Road and Highway 200.

"We will continue to thrive with 582 successful stores in operation and will continue to deliver a store experience our associates, customers and communities can count on," the company said in a statement.
