LAPLACE — Southeastern Grocers is now offering rapid testing for COVID-19 in all Winn-Dixie pharmacies throughout the Southeast communities it serves. This new pharmacy offering will allow patients to conveniently self-administer a nasal swab test under the guidance of a pharmacist.

Patients receive certified testing results in 15 minutes or less through a secure email or text message and results are valid to present for travel or event attendance, such as concerts, sporting events or other gatherings. The grocer is offering a reduced price on testing during the month of May for $19.99 (regular price $24.99), and patients are asked to bring their ID card or driver’s license, and smartphone (if available) to their preferred pharmacy location for testing.

This expansion of clinical services further enhances patient experiences through a new partnership with Workflow Services by ImageMover, which provides technology solutions to streamline the grocer’s digital workflow, integrate medical data and simplify quality care protocols.

Online appointments and walk-ups for rapid COVID-19 are available for customers ages three and older in all Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie in-store pharmacies.
The grocer encourages qualified individuals to visit www.winndixie.com/pharmacy/testing for timely updates including available appointments, pharmacy locations, frequently asked questions and guidance to support the health and well-being of the communities it serves.
SEG appreciates the flexibility, kindness and respect for other shoppers and associates shown by its customers, and asks for their continued cooperation to keep communities safe and healthy.

During the month of May, SEG is also inviting customers to purchase a new reusable community bag for $2.99 in all Winn-Dixie grocery locations to support for local animal rescues and shelters during National Pet Month.

SEG is partnering with nearly 400 animal shelters and rescues across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi for its Pet Month Community Bag program. For every community bag purchased, $1 will be directed to each store’s partner animal shelter organization.

Raymond Rhee, chief people officer for Southeastern Grocers, said, “At Southeastern Grocers, we are dedicated to supporting causes that are important to our customers and associates, and we know our communities are big animal lovers. With the purchase of a community bag during the month of May, our customers can help our furry, four-legged friends in need of a forever home and reduce the use of single-use plastic bags to nurture a healthier, more sustainable planet. Together, we can make the world a better place for humans and animals alike.”

Since its inception in February 2019, SEG’s Community Bag program has supported more than 7,300 nonprofit organizations and saved more than 11.6 million single-use plastic bags* from being used.

Each month, stores will select a new organization to benefit from the program including education, civic, health and wellness, hunger and disaster relief, veterans and military families as well as belonging, inclusion and diversity organizations serving the local community.
