    Wink Winn Dixie’s name origin...

    Down Here in So Fl there is a Chain of Grocery Stores by the Name of Winn Dixie...! There are a Few Stores Named Fresco y Mas which I believe are just Spanish WD's...! BooBoo gets Curious about things every so often and goes looking...! I also hear the Name Piggly Wiggly and that got Me real Curious... Found this :

    Winn Dixie’s name origin: How and when did the supermarket chain get its name?

    They bee wanting to change their Name but, no, nowhere in the story can I see the new name...!!!

    This Article is from 7 Months Ago, so go figure...!!!

    "Following the news that the Dixie Chicks have removed the word ‘Dixie’ from their name, supermarket chain Winn Dixie is the latest one to consider a name change.
    The Black Lives Matter movement has let to a global network of supporters for equal human rights and social justice.
    Fashion and beauty brands are finally taking into account the importance of diversity, while TV series such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine has scrapped entire episodes to address the movement in a better way.
    The supermarket brand Winn Dixie is now considering a name change after the band Dixie Chicks removed the d-word from their name."

    Once upon a time I saw this movie called CC and Company with Joe Namath where he's walking around in a supermarket. He gathers up the ingredients for a sandwich and makes and it eat it while cruising the aisles.
    I thought this was so cool that I re-enacted the scene in the Winn Dixie on Cordova road in Ft. Lauderdale. I was 12

    One need not be a supporter of the old Confederacy (and I am not) in order to take pride in one's Southern heritage; including the term "Dixie" as a rough designation of that area which comprises the Southern states.

    Some people appear to want to make Southerners disrespectful of their heritage; and make the South more nearly resemble the North. (It is no longer a matter of Blue versus Gray; rather, it is a matter of Blue versus Red.)
