The Winn-Dixie store on Pass Road in Biloxi is closing, along with 93 other grocery stores in the region, Southeastern Grocers announced Thursday.

Customers at the Biloxi store reported Thursday afternoon that employees were crying after notice was posted that the pharmacy would close permanently at 5 p.m. Customers were told prescriptions will be transferred to the Walgreens Pharmacy across the street in Biloxi.

Southeastern Grocers, parent company of Winn-Dixie, said on Thursday it will voluntarily file Chapter 11 to restructure.

“We have not taken these steps without careful planning and consideration,” the company said in a statement. It will close 94 “underperforming stores,” including the one in Biloxi.

“We will continue to thrive with 582 successful stores in operation and will continue to deliver a store experience our associates, customers and communities can count on,” Winn-Dixie said.

Chapter 11 gives a company the opportunity to reorganize its debt, and the company said, “It is our goal to work through our financial l restructuring as quickly and efficiently as possible and we expect to emerge within the next 90 days.”

Bloomberg reported last month that the grocery chain may file for bankruptcy and close 200 stores.

Winn-Dixie closed its store at 1444 East Pass Road in June 2017.

Renovations at the Winn-Dixie store on U.S. 90 in Ocean Springs completely remodeled the store last year. The company said it will remodel “a significant” portion of its stores under a three-year plan.

The chain is headquartered in Florida and has five stores in South Mississippi: the Pass Road location in Biloxi that will close, D’Iberville Boulevard in D’Iberville, U.S. 49 in Gulfport, Cleveland Avenue in Long Beach and Bienville Boulevard in Ocean Springs. The Biloxi store also has an adjacent liquor store.
