Southeastern Grocers to open 80th Harveys store
Southeastern Grocers has found a winning new banner in Harveys, which will celebrate its 80th location this month in Florida.
The company is opening three new Harveys in November: a second Harveys store in Tampa, Fla., and two new locations in Lakeland.
In November 2016, Southeastern Grocers refreshed and re-launched nearly 70 Winn-Dixie locations with the new Harveys banner. The company says new energy from the banner has propelled significant growth for Southeastern Grocers over the past year. In Florida alone, Harveys Supermarket has opened nearly 20 locations in the last year with expansion into seven new markets.
“Harveys Supermarket has thrived over the past year, and we continue to receive an overwhelmingly positive response from our customers. This is no doubt due to the dedication our team has applied to customer listening sessions to truly identify our customers’ needs so we can best tailor each store to provide the service, products and prices our customers in the area desire,” said Anthony Hucker, CEO of Southeastern Grocers. "At Harveys Supermarket our goal is to provide great prices while continuing to offer great value. We are confident our customers will be able to find great savings on thousands of items in their new Harveys Supermarket, because we are committed to providing multiple savings programs with lower prices on items they buy most.“
The company says Harveys continues to excel in a very competitive Florida grocery industry by remaining focused on the grocers’ commitment to the nearly century-long heritage and unwavering customer promise to provide great value, great prices and great service.
Each new location will offer customers an enhanced shopping experience that is customized for their community and complete with products at great prices. Some of the new features and savings opportunities available at all three locations include:
