Customers of Winn-Dixie store No. 285 in South Miami, Florida, continue to enjoy the new shopping experience at the recently-remodeled store.

Store Director Jorge Hung and his team welcomed more than 200 shoppers to the store Aug. 15 to “Celebrate Summer” and enjoy a grilling demonstration by local Chef Bryan Daniel, sampling items from a variety of store departments, live entertainment, giveaways and more during an afternoon of food and fun.

As the word about Hung’s revitalized store spreads throughout the community, the store team continues to welcome new customers. To give them and dedicated current customers a special treat in the summer heat, local Chef Bryan prepared an Asian Turkey Burger with Pickled Cucumbers, complemented by the Deli Department’s freshly-prepared broccoli salad, sharing grilling tips and tricks with shoppers. Throughout the event, Hung says he was flooded with compliments about the store’s festivities as customers enjoyed tasty food and live jazz music.

“We are very proud to have customers enjoy events like Celebrate Summer, which help us showcase our freshly-prepared food, and new and expanded offerings,” he said. “The smiles on our customers’ faces tell us they enjoyed the afternoon as they sampled new products and learned how to make a simple, delicious summer meal.”
