Still Down After One Year: Prices Down and Staying Down

$100 Million Investment Delivering Better Value for Customers

  • Southeastern Grocers brought prices down on hundreds of items one year
    ago – and prices are down on over 1,000 products across BI-LO and
    Winn-Dixie Stores.
  • Families shopping at BI-LO and Winn-Dixie saved approximately
    $700-$1,000 in 2016 with the Down Down pricing program.
  • 98% of customers are buying items on Down Down in their weekly shop.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BI-LO and Winn-Dixie stores are celebrating the first birthday of ‘Down
Down’
– Down Down is a pricing promise to not only lower prices, but
keep them down for at least six months.


Ian McLeod, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers said, “We
know grocery prices are important to our customers, and we wanted to
make sure they were receiving the best value on the products they buy
the most.

“Families shopping at BI-LO and Winn-Dixie stores have saved up to
$1,000 in 2016 over 2015 due to the Down Down prices.”

“That’s why we lowered prices on hundreds of items and made a promise
that these prices were staying down for six months. One year later that
promise stands, well beyond our original commitment.”

Nearly 98% of BI-LO and Winn-Dixie customers purchase items from Down
Down in a weekly shop – testament to BI-LO and Winn-Dixie lowering
prices on hundreds of pantry essentials, such as bread, fresh produce,
dairy, meat, dry, frozen and home goods.
