Florida shoppers may soon have less grocery options.

According to a Bloomberg report, Winn-Dixie’s parent company Bi-Lo LLC is preparing to file for bankruptcy as soon as March.

A source who wished not to be identified publicly told Bloomberg the company is planning to close almost 200 stores before or after its filing.

Winn-Dixie has stores across our viewing area from Boca Raton to Vero Beach. 

This would be the third time Winn-Dixie has filed for bankruptcy, the other instances occurred in 2005 and 2009, according to Bloomberg.

Winn-Dixie did not comment on the report. No official notice has been made about stores that may be impacted by the impending decision.
