Winn-Dixie closures to impact the Magnolia State

Posted: Updated:

SOUTHEAST U.S. (WLBT) - Winn-Dixie announced Thursday that it will be closing 30 under performing grocery stores and cutting 120 jobs across the country.

Weak sales have forced the southeastern food retailer to consolidate its four operating regions to three across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.

Two Meridian stores in the Magnolia State have been impacted.

The stores are set to be closed by September 22nd.
