Winn-Dixie is a grocery store chain based in Jacksonville, Florida with several locations in the Birmingham District. The company bought out the Birmingham-based Hill's Food Stores in the 1960s.

The company went through a bankruptcy reorganization in 2005 and was purchased by Greenville, South Carolina's Bi-Lo chain in 2012. The combined holding company, reorganized in September 2013 by Lone Star Funds as "Southeastern Grocers", moved its headquarters to Jacksonville, Florida.

The company began modernizing its area stores in 2012, beginning with a $2.4 million renovation of the Montevallo Road location. The remodeled store included an expanded deli and bakery with prepared foods. The kitchen is overseen by chef Scott Lokey.

In March 2018 Southeastern Grocers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, reporting more than $1 billion in debts. Plans were announced to close 94 stores, including 10 of its 56 Alabama locations.
