Once again we are limiting the choices for consumers and forcing them to shop at super retail giants like Walmart instead of embracing local businesses. Tampa will be forced to choose between 2 regional grocery stores which will increase our prices or to save money, be forced to shop at the national chains Target and Walmart which have historically been the demise of small and regional businesses. These local businesses were what our country was founded on and we are destroying them and favoring the billion dollar businesses who could give a ratt's ass about the average consumer. Thanks Winn-Dixie and the FTC for once more, helping destroy the American dream for a few extra bucks and corporate gluttony. I liked that we had more choices in the Tampa Bay area and am disappointed that that was taken away. I will probably not be shopping at Winn Dixie not only because that was not my choice in the past, but because of their pricing practices, it will not be my choice in the future.
