Rouses will take over operation of Orange Beach Winn-Dixie
Rouses Markets announced on Thursday, March 22 that it would be taking over the Winn-Dixie on Perdido Beach Boulevard in Orange Beach. The announcement comes on the heels of Winn-Dixie’s parent company’s plans to close locations across the Southeast as it prepares to file for bankruptcy.
According to a post by Rouses Markets on its Facebook page, the new store will open in late April. “We’ll do a refresh and reset and reopen before Memorial Day with a full remodel to begin after the busy summer season,” the post reads.
Responding to a comment about the great Winn-Dixie staff in Orange Beach, Rouses said, “We’re encouraging all team members to stay on board with us!” The new store will grow Rouses Baldwin County locations to three with one in Gulf Shores and the other in Spanish Fort.
