GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- Bi-Lo, the parent company of Winn-Dixie, has purchased 155 stores, including Harvey's, Sweetbay and Reid's, which will result in the closing of a Harvey's Supermarket in Green Cove Springs.
It is being closed due to its proximity to Winn-Dixie, which is about a mile north of Harvey's on U.S. 17.
Charlie Thomas has been shopping there for 7 years and he won't be happy to see it closed on May 3rd.
"We are really going to miss it , because I shop here 3 or 4 times a week. And by comparison with prices at the Winn-Dixie right up the street here, we are going to miss this store," he said. "Cheaper, they always have good deals."
Bill Smith just moved to Green Cove Springs 6 months ago and enjoys shopping here.
