Bi-Lo plans to spend $93 million renovating the Winn-Dixie headquarters.

Stocking the Ranks

Greenville, S.C.-based Bi-Lo Holdings, which bought Winn-Dixie in a $560-million deal, will relocate its headquarters to Jacksonville. The decision keeps 900 jobs in Jacksonville and creates an additional 100. The company will also invest $93 million at Winn-Dixie's headquarters. Winn-Dixie stores will not be renamed. Florida and Jacksonville offered more than $6 million in incentives. Local officials say South Carolina offered considerably more. Florida will fund $1 million in training and $3.6 million for relocation and equipment. Jacksonville will kick in $2 million over 10 years, with the money tied to Bi-Lo's local investment.
