NEW ORLEANS - Winn-Dixie will close 3 stores that it says are underperforming in south Louisiana, according to a story in the New Orleans Advocate.
The stores in question include those at 4600 Chef Menteur Highway in New Orleans, 851 Brownswitch Road in Slidell and 3803-F Moss. St. in Lafayette.
In the story, the Advocate says the closure comes as Winn-Dixie is still trying to rebuild and re-open a store in the 9700 block of Chef Menteur Highway. That store was damaged by a tornado in February.
The article quotes a Winn-Dixie spokesman as saying the decision to close the stores was "difficult."
