On Nov. 15 Winn-Dixie Stores celebrated the completion of its seventh state-of-the-art transformational store and the first to have a bilingual décor package. The newly renovated store is located at 3275 SW 22nd St. in Miami.
“This store exemplifies our commitment to South Florida guests and serves as a one-stop grocery destination catering to the needs, tastes and preferences of the surrounding community,” said Randy Rambo, Winn-Dixie regional VP. “We are passionate about delivering on our promise of providing Winn-Dixie guests with excellent service and an exceptional shopping experience.”
This multi-million-dollar renovation provides greater convenience and an improved guest experience with a myriad of upgraded features, according to Winn-Dixie.
Just past the greatly expanded produce department is an expansive new deli serving restaurant-quality entrees and side dishes for guests who are too time-crunched to cook a meal. Experienced chefs’ direct preparation of the wide variety of foods and meal solutions that include a made-to-order pizza and pasta bar, seven flavors of chicken wings, a barbecue bar and a carving station with prime rib, fresh fish and more. In addition, guests will be pleased to find an expanded bakery, a gourmet cheese counter, expanded meat and seafood departments, an upgraded pharmacy and self-service kiosks for meal planning, among other things.
In addition to the expansive wine and cheese sections staffed by knowledgeable specialists, the Coral Way Winn-Dixie also features a cozy sitting area, complete with free Wi-Fi internet access and a full-service Cuban café featuring authentic Cuban favorites.
