Store Closing Sales Begin at 257 Winn-Dixie and SaveRite Stores; Event Co-Managed by Hilco Merchant Resources, LLC and Gordon Brothers Group, LLC.

NORTHBROOK, Ill.--()--Aug. 11, 2005--Store closing sales have just begun at 257 selected Winn-Dixie and SaveRite supermarkets located in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Virginia, Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana.

Very deep discounts of 30 to 50 percent are being offered on over $200 million worth of famous brand food and beverages, household products and general merchandise. All stores are well stocked. The discounts being offered are expected to create tremendous customer response and the sale will end very quickly. Store fixtures and equipment are also being offered for sale at attractive prices in most closing locations.

In June 2005, Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. ("WNDXQ") announced it would be reducing its footprint from 37 Designated Market Areas (DMAs) in the U.S. and the Bahamas to 23 DMAs. This action is part of an overall plan to focus on its strongest markets to enhance the company's financial performance and position it for profitability in the long term.

Speaking for the two companies which are conducting the sales, Michael Keefe, Chief Executive Officer of Hilco Merchant Resources, stated, "The selection of Hilco and Gordon Brothers to conduct these important store closings is an affirmation of the unparalleled expertise that our combined team has in the supermarket sector."
