Actually, Winn Dixie is owned by Bi-Lo Holdings which also now owns Sweetbay as well as other smaller chains.

Default Publix vs. Sweetbay/Winn Dixie

I think Sweetbay and Winn Dixie are more expensive than Publix....not that Publix is cheap. They run about 20-25% more expensive than my home in the midwest.

Just for your info, I bought an item in Walgreens that was in the $15.00 range and then went to Publix and it was $5.00 cheaper in their pharmacy dept. I was suprised. Publix is the best around as far as I'm concerned. My only complaint would be they are almost always asking for donations for one cause or another or there is almost always somebody out front asking for money. I usually go there about 3 times a week and can't be donating every time I go.
ALSO, have you ever had a bad shopping cart at Publix? Have you ever had a good shopping cart at Walmart? Little things make a difference.

I've seen them blow drying the carts.

Walking out the groceries was a little weird at first, but now I'm good with it because the people who work there are cool.

take something back to Publix with no receipt. money refunded.
item rings up differently than ad or shelf price, you get it free.
but ya'll go to Sweetbay, ok? I'm not used to being third in line ever at Publix.

I remember the bad old days when almost every supermarket cart was broken, or had at least had one bad wheel. The carts at Publix are all perfect and perfectly clean. I show my appreciation by always returning my cart to the cart garage.

I've noticed Publix carts are the cart of choice for many of our homeless.
