- Bi-Lo Holdings, parent company of Bi-Lo, Winn-Dixie, and Harvey grocery retail chains, has announced its new corporate name, Southeastern Grocers.
- The company first used its new name when filing for an IPO in 2013, though it withdrew that request and returned to operating under its original name.
- The switch and subsequent announcement are meant to clear up any confusion that might have resulted from that temporary name change.
"This change symbolizes that regardless of whether we work for BI-LO, Harveys or Winn-Dixie, we are all part of a unified family with a common aim to do the best we can for all of our customers across the Southeast," according to a statement from the company.
The names of Bi-Lo's stores will not be affected.
