Two groceries expand

OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. – Two grocery stores have unveiled multimillion-dollar makeovers that expand their prepared food sections. Rouses Market and Winn-Dixie, a couple miles apart on U.S. 90, are celebrating their new looks with grand re-openings. Customers lined up for free gift cards handed out for the event last month at Winn-Dixie. This weekend Rouses Market celebrated its grand re-opening with product samplings and special sales. Following in the footsteps of Walmart’s new pickup service, the management of both Winn-Dixie and Rouses say they are researching similar “click and collect” programs, where shoppers order their groceries online, let the staff do the shopping and pick up their orders at a convenient time.
