Winn Dixie Closes, Red Robin Opens

September 9, 2016


Change is consistent with one grocery store closing and one restaurant opening. The Winn Dixie in the Northside Shopping Center on Main Street in Gainesville is closing early next month due to poor performance. Winn Dixie's parent company, Bi-Lo said it has no plans to close its other stores on SW 16th Ave, SW 34th St or stores in Williston and High Springs. Red Robin is coming to Ocala.  The deal was announced with the sale of the Black Bear Smokehouse on SR 200.  Plans are to demolish the building and build the Red Robin from scratch within the next 6 months.  Red Robin specializes in craft burgers and beer and will sit between Outback and Olive Garden in Ocala.
