The Winn-Dixie team in Parker, Fla. celebrates the grand opening of its new Wine & Spirits store with customers and local officials.​

Winn-Dixie No. 548 joined City of Parker representatives and Bay County Chamber ambassadors for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and $500 gift card presentation to the City of Parker Fire Department.

The grand opening celebration also included live entertainment and tastings from the Parker Winn-Dixie store’s prepared foods department and sips of shaken cocktails.

“We are pleased with the success of our new Wine & Spirits store in Parker,” said Rob Richardson, district director for Winn-Dixie. “It is with much appreciation that we are able to accommodate our customers in the Parker community.”

Store Director Jeremy Hudson was recognized by Mayor Richard Musgrave for his ongoing and active support in the community, and then Hudson presented the gift card to the City of Parker Fire Department Chief Andrew Kelly.

“This donation will cover our groceries for the remainder of the year -- we are so thankful to Winn-Dixie,” Kelly said.

The Winn-Dixie Wine & Spirits store showcases the newest decor concepts, along with an expansive selection of imported, domestic and craft beers, a variety of premium liquors, additional wine assortments and specialty items.

“To take part in a liquor store expansion, and see it through from conception a couple years ago, through the planning, build out, and grand opening is one of the most rewarding experiences of my career,” Hudson said. “A liquor store is a large investment in a footprint, district, location, and its staff. This shows the trust the company has in the team and I to make this investment successful by living up our company's values.”
