Congratulations, and good luck to you all!
If you live in Louisiana, and are close to a Winn-Dixie supermarket, my friend LaDana has some good news for you; Winn-Dixie is lowering prices on a variety of Louisiana favorites. According to Ian McCleod, president and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, parent company to Winn-Dixie, "Louisiana’s local Down Down is dropping prices by up to 37 percent on household staples that Winn-Dixie customers clearly love – in the past year alone, they’ve purchased more than 125 tons of Camellia Red Beans and 100,000 (12 oz.) bags of Community Coffee, 10 times more of these products than customers in the other Gulf Coast states." So get thee to a Winn-Dixie and save.
