Gainesville city commissioners are working to keep Winn-Dixie at its current location on North Main Street. The store’s property management, Bosshardt, is considering relocating the store to the former Albertson’s location on NW 13th Street. Frequent Winn-Dixie shopper Natalie Williams says closing the store’s doors would make grocery shopping difficult.

Winn-Dixie is one of the only grocery stores on the east side of Gainesville.  Mayor Craig Lowe is planning to send a letter to Bosshardt management expressing the city’s appreciation for the store later this week
