NORTHPORT, ALABAMA -- I shop at Winn Dixie in Northport several times a week and they are always asking if you would like to make a donation to one cause or another. I have payroll deductions taken out of each paycheck for the charities I contribute to and am SICK of being asked every time I walk in their doors if I want to make a donation. I don't think the grocery store is a place to be asking their customers for donations. If they care so much about their "CAUSES" why don't they advertise how much they are going to donate of their profits?

Former Location Manager
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- I worked in the, now closed down, Atlanta Division for 20 years 3 months and 5 days. 1970-1990. I worked in almost all the departments and ended up as a Store Manager. The upper management in those days were autocratic and often abusive. They took an adversarial view of store employees. We had little say, for example, as to sales per man hour or display set up. It was all dictated from the top down by people who hadn't worked in a store for decades. Most employees and executives were high school graduates only. We had an almost 100% turn over in store management. There were very few of us who had a knowledge of the history of the company. The pay was low and set on a three tiered system with those hired after a certain date getting a lower top hourly salary than those hired earlier. I fell into the grandfather pay scale and found out to my horror that they were eliminating those associates who made the top pay for younger ones who would max out at less. Many of our stores were understaffed and we always had a surplus of new, newer or newest employees who were untrained or untrainable. They asked more of them or us than was possible to produce without experience. and time.

Only a favored few who had family relatives in executive positions got promoted to those higher paying jobs. Many of them got burned out as well. I think the corporate culture has now changed but it was too late for the Atlanta area. Our stores were dirty always short handed. It was a tough, thankless job. No bonuses ever

Where Are the Sale Items?
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- Did you find everything OK? That's always the question at checkout, so when someone says no they are taken aback. That's the problem that arose for me at the Orlando Winn Dixie on Curry Ford Rd. When I asked about their wine sale or where is the organic spaghetti sauce the answer is the same "I'm sorry we don't carry that item here" but we let you know with the disclaimer "Items not in all stores".

Shall I call you beforehand with my list? Hello Winn DIxie management ..If you're throwing a sale at least have an end cap or display for each store. Is that hard for you folks to grasp?

Not Honoring Winn Dixie Fuel Perks For What It Is Worth
Posted by on
Rating: 3/51
AUBURNDALE, FLORIDA -- When I first starting getting my gas at the Circle K (shell oil) gas station I was using Winn Dixie fuel perks awards. I had no problems. But now, as of today the gas station is not fully honoring the full fuel perks. My son in law called Winn Dixie customer service to complain about not honoring the full fuel perks. Desiree was very sarcastic and refused to help us about the matter. I am very upset about this because this is way I spend my money at Winn Dixie. I spend more than 400.00 a month. If this is not resolved and corrected and give me my full fuel perks I will go shop at Publix and Wal Mart. I went to the gas station expecting my gas to be. 49 cents a gallon with the perks and also the. 90 reward. After I got home I checked my receipt and it was 1.509 per gallon and no perk rewards and on top of it all they now stop pumping at 20 gallons and no more. This is wrong because it is not on the receipt that there is only a 20 gallon limit. I paid 30.18 for 20 gallons of gas in which it was only supposed to be. 49 per gallon plus fuel perks. There were no fuel perks involved.

Other people have filed consumer complaints against Winn Dixie over this matter. It may be also linked to an investigation now being conducted by the Federal Trades Commission in Washington DC. Lets put a stop to this now before we loose Winn Dixie because after all I would rather show at Winn Dixie than any other store but I do not like being scammed by anyone or any company.

Card discounts
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
PALM BAY, FLORIDA -- I am writing about Winn Dixie on Malabar and Minton in Palm Bay, Florida, this store, gives discounts if one has a membership card, the products have two sets of prices, with and without membership card, I have noticed on two occations that the discounted price does not ring up at the register, the first time I got the store managers attention and was given the excuse that the person who put the meats out had not had a chance to change the price in the system, at that time I was given the discounted membership price, just yesterday I went there to buy some stew meat, I used the self check out register, along with the stew meat I also bought some cookies which were. 99 cents and by one get one free, when I rang up, it I needed assistance to get the price corrected, the cashier had an attitude, but gave me the discount, I later noticed that the meat had rung up at the 16.00 instead of the 11.00 which was the advertised price with card, they are such rip offs, beware and check your receipts...

Fuel Perks Program is a Fraud
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
FLORIDA -- The Fuel Perks program at Winn-Dixie is a fraud. The items on the Fuel Perks program are those items either they are trying to get rid of, or are the most profit boosting items for the company. This means the customer is spending more. The program is also bringing in clientel that stores like Publix, Fresh Market, and the upscale supermarkets frown upon. Back in the past, Winn-Dixie catered to the hard working, blue collar worker. Today that ideal has reversed to those who live off of government benefits (WIC, Food Stamps, etc). When was the last time you saw a LARGE number of WIC customers shopping at a Publix or Fresh Market? What many may not realize is that Winn-Dixie is not about the customer, but is about the money they make. Now that they are bought over by Bi-Lo, you will notice even more the prices going up. I realize also that the Fuel Perks program is not going to last forever, and eventually they will kill the program without customers even knowing it. If you really think you are getting a bargin by shopping at Winn-Dixie then go ahead and throw your money away.

Gas perks scam
Posted by on
Rating: 2/51
SEBASTIAN, FLORIDA -- When Winn Dixie offered perks for cheaper gas we thought this is a great idea. But when we discovered that Winn Dixie uses the "Higher" priced gas stations, that are NOT convenient to the area we shop in, we quickly saw the scam. These operators (more often than not) screw up the Winn Dixie card, then charge you for the higher priced fuel. If you choose to argue with them, they run you through hoops trying to discourage you (what with other customers and all)so that you will just leave. We KNOW Winn Dixie knows about these practices. Since Winn Dixie's prices are inflated in the area anyway...it's probably best that we just shop ELSEWHERE. We'll be sure to pass along our gas perk experiences to our Winn Dixie shopping friends.

Not Safe at Winn Dixie
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
PALM BAY, FLORIDA -- I'm 6 months pregnant, so I took a friend and my 15 month old to Winn Dixie to get groceries. I went the Winn Dixie on Malabar rd last week and a girl that used to have a grudge with my friend approached her with my son in the cart, she started screaming and was on my son that's how close! She's threatening to hurt her in uniform on shift!! With my son there! Then threatened she would attack us all in the parking lot when we left!! I called and reported it with 3 different managers and Winn Dixie said that I didn't have enough proof so all she got was a talk...? I was so scared I had to have my husband pick me and the baby up! Threaten a mother and baby?? Never again going there!!!

Spoiled Chicken
Posted by on
SAINT CLOUD, FLORIDA -- Since August 2008 and March 2010 I have had to return spoiled chicken to Winn Dixie for replacement 6 times, and on two other separate occasions I just threw out the chicken without returning it at all. This is totally unacceptable, I've complained to Winn/Dixie's corporate office numerous times about this to no avail and it seems to fall on deaf ears, they don't even offer so much as an apology at corporate level. All the above is referenced Winn/Dixie's Saint Cloud, Florida store, additionally I have notified Sanderson Farms regarding my issues and at least they offered an apology for this situation, its my belief I'm not the only one having this problem with Winn/Dixie and would like to hear from others with this sort of complaint. I have moved on from being a loyal Shopper at Winn/Dixie and have elected to shop elsewhere....

Complaint
Posted by on
On June 23rd I went into the Winn Dixie on Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach to pick up some items at the deli. I personally do not like pre-packaged items because I feel that they dry out. I asked the lady behind the counter if I could have some potato salad. She told me that there were some below already packaged. When I informed here that I did not care for them she refused to give me any fresh potato salad--I left and talked to Deli Manager whom has also tried to sell me pre-packaged items before--I have always left without buying pre-packaged. After leaving the Deli I asked to speak to the manager of the store and got the nexr best thing Asst Manager (I think). I told her my problem and she asked me if I got everything I was shopping for and I told her NO.
She said she would talk to the Deli people and walked off. I left store Publix is right across the road. This was my last adventure at Winn Dixie. I work for a large resort on the beach. I will never say anything bad about Winn Dixie. I will never recoment it to our guest.
