Winn-Dixie eases shopping experience with new app

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Winn-Dixie Stores announced it launched a smartphone application that will help customers find their closest Winn-Dixie, allow them to view the weekly circular and sales for that specific store, and create and manage shopping lists that both sync with computers and can be shared with other users. The app for Apple’s iPhone and Android smart phones is available as a free download through Apple Inc.’s iTunes, the Android Market or through links on Winn-Dixie’s website at http://www.winndixie.com/Mobile/apps.

“Our customers are on-the-go more than ever and this new app will make their busy lives easier,” said Mary Kellmanson, Winn-Dixie group VP marketing. “Using the new app in the store, you can check off items as you place them in your cart, so you’ll never miss an item on your list. And you’ll always be organized -- no more paper lists stuffed in pockets or purses or left at home or in the car.”
