The supermarket chain’s remaining stores will soon become Winn-Dixie locations.

Article written by Patch associate regional editor Sherri Lonon.

Folks accustomed to stopping in at a local Sweetbay supermarket to pick up a few groceries on their way home will soon find a new name on the door.

Thanks to the impending buyout of the chain by Bi-Lo Holdings, Tampa Bay area Sweetbay locations will become Winn-Dixie stores, according to TBO.com. The highly publicized deal to sell the Sweetbay locations is expected to be finalized in early 2014. How soon after that the Sweetbay name will go away remains unclear at this time.

Winn Dixie is getting so over priced, we need a target food store there or a walmart food store, I remember there was a Winn Dixie where publx is when I first moved to safety harbor, Just as long it's not another bar because Safety Harbor has the most Bars

Publix is over priced. I noticed changes over the past few months, expired food subpar fruit. I liked the Sweetbay In Safety Harbor and will miss it.
