Winn-Dixie stores from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Destrehan, Louisiana had a lot to celebrate this holiday season. With three stores in the area being recently remodeled, store Nos. 1577, 1590 and 1588 all opened their doors to show appreciation for their customers with "Celebrate Delicious" Taste of Holiday events.

Each event offered shoppers samples of holiday treats available storewide. Some of the delights were featured from store departments, and vendors offered other samples.

Store No. 1577 in Baton Rouge teamed up with Parkview Baptist to feature the local school's second grade choir. Winn-Dixie shoppers enjoyed holiday samples while the elementary division of the school performed Christmas carols. The Coca-Cola Santa truck was parked outside the store collecting items for Toys for Tots and playing holiday music.

"Taste of Holiday gave our customers a sample of the variety of prepared foods available at our local Winn-Dixie stores during the holiday season and all year long," said District 6 director Zach Wesson. "The customers at store No. 1577 really enjoyed the holiday event. It was another great way to show off all of the store amenities that we are so proud to feature."

In Destrahan, Louisiana, store No. 1588’s holiday event was also a big hit. The event featured music performed by Mike Mcgaha, the store's talented meat department manager.

"Customers were pleasantly surprised when they walked in the store to the mellow singing from a familiar face," said Morris Soudelier, store No. 1588 director. "Mike really brought holiday cheer and a festive spirit into the store."
