Sweetbay Plans to Cut 346 Jobs Ahead of Bi-Lo Acquisition

Still pending regulatory approval to be acquired by Bi-Lo Holdings LLC, Sweetbay Supermarket is planning to cut 346 jobs. In May, Bi-Lo paid $265 million in cash to buysubstantially all of the stores in the Sweetbay, Harveys and Reid's supermarket chains from Delhaize Group. That deal did not include Sweetbay headquarters or its distribution center. With the transaction expected to close in early 2014, the company filed the notice at least 60 days in advance. Bi-Lo has said it plans to rebrand the stores as Winn-Dixie and Bi-Lo.

Sweetbay LLC to Close Underperforming Stores by February 2013

The four Southwest Florida Sweetbay LLC's supermarkets that are part of a statewide effort to close underperforming stores will shut down by Feb. 13.

The Naples stores to close are at 2482 Immokalee Road, 5926 Premier Way, and 4015 Santa Barbara Blvd. The other Southwest Florida store to close is at 10175 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda.

Sweetbay LLC Plans to Lays Off 2,000 in Florida, Nearly 200 in Manatee

Sweetbay LLC planed to close 33 underperforming stores in Florida, including three in Manatee County and one in Sarasota. Not on the list are three Sweetbay supermarkets in Manatee County: 515 Seventh St. W., Palmetto; 5805 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton; and 5802 14 St. W., Bradenton. But the Bradenton stores at 5201 33rd St. E. and 8750 State Road 70 E., as well as the stores at 3410 U.S. 301 in Ellenton and 501 N. Beneva Road, Sarasota, will close by mid-February. About 2,000 employees will be laid off as a result. Each store employs 50 to 60 workers. The company said all employees, both full-time and part-time, will receive severance packages, but the company will not offer an employment placement program. The company leases its properties and the locations are in the process of being vacated. The store closures include six stores in Tampa, 12 in Pinellas and Pasco counties, and three in Naples.
