An Asian market will be moving into the former Winn-Dixie in the Coytown Shopping Center on the corner of Colonial Drive and Bumby Avenue [GMap].
The grocer closed in November of 2014 and has been vacant since.
The owner of the Coytown Shopping Center, Homer B. Jamerson, confirmed that a “Hong Kong grocery store” would be moving into the space in the new year and projected an opening in three months.
Jamerson’s office would not confirm if that was the name or the type of new store moving in. We will update the story as details become more available.
