Gainesville city commissioners are working to keep Winn-Dixie at its current location on North Main Street.

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
