Another year has come and gone, and Southeastern Grocers (SEG) is celebrating its achievements over the last 12 months, especially when it comes to its commitment to customers and communities. Dedicated to its mission, the retailer used the past 365 days to introduce new products, unveil value-increasing programs, and give more than $3.7 million to support those in need.

Raymond Rhee, Chief People Officer, Southeastern Grocers“Reflecting on the remarkable journey we’ve taken over the past year, we are immensely grateful for the incredible dedication of our associates and the unwavering support of our loyal customers. Throughout 2023, we celebrated many WINNs as we worked together to improve our stores, support our neighbors, and lend a helping hand to community members in need,” Raymond Rhee, Chief People Officer for Southeastern Grocers, said. “As we turn the page on a new chapter in 2024, we look forward to another year of nourishing communities and fostering genuine connections—both inside and outside of our neighborhood stores."

For SEG, the past year was one of growth and renewal, as it unveiled 17 store remodels, providing an improved, localized shopping experience and enhanced offerings to shoppers. According to a release, the grocer also opened two new Winn-Dixie stores in Florida.

In 2023, SEG and the SEG Gives Foundation donated more than $3.7 million to more than 1,300 community partners throughout the Southeast. This includes $560,000 and more than 13 million pounds of food to fight food insecurity throughout the Southeast in partnership with Feeding America® and its food bank partners; $460,000 to support emergency preparedness and disaster relief efforts; and $750,000 to Folds of Honor to provide 150 educational scholarships to the legacies of fallen and disabled service members.
