Winn-Dixie to consolidate distribution
Mar 30, 2006 9:20 AM, from staff and wire reports
Winn-Dixie Stores Inc has decided to consolidate its distribution operations in southern Florida to help position it for profitability when it emerges from Chapter 11 later in 2006.
The Jacksonville FL-based supermarket chain will sell its distribution center in Pompano Beach FL and move the work performed there to its distribution center nearby in Miami. Associates at the Pompano Beach facility will be offered positions in Miami. Transfer of operations is expected to begin in late April and be completed by the end of June.
Winn-Dixie is seeking potential buyers for the Pompano Beach facility, which is about 787,500 square feet and handles grocery, meat, dairy, and produce items. The Miami facility is about 961,690 square feet and handles the same items as well as frozen foods. There are roughly 280 full-time and part-time associates at the Pompano site and 440 at the Miami facility.
Those interested in purchasing the Pompano Beach facility may phone Emilio Amendola at DJM Asset Management at 631-752-1100.
