Uber Eats will now pick up your groceries at Tampa Winn-Dixies

It would appear you no longer need to step foot in a Winn-Dixie.

Jacksonville-based Southeastern Grocers, which owns Winn-Dixie and Fresco y Más, has partnered with the restaurant delivery app Uber Eats to deliver groceries in the Tampa area, as well as Orlando, Miami and Jacksonville.

While it is certainly a convenient option, especially for those of you who are avoiding grocery stores, know that purchases come with a 10% service fee, as well as a separate delivery fee.

“Our customers and communities count on us to adapt quickly to their shifting needs, and right now they need easy and safe access to their groceries more than ever before,” said Adam Kirk, senior vice president of marketing for Southeastern Grocers, in a news release. “Our home state of Florida has been on the front lines of the pandemic — we’re eager to roll out a cutting-edge service to support them both for today and into the future.”

The new service is hardly the first grocery delivery option in Tampa Bay, Instacart already offers service from Publix, Aldi and other retailers. But for those of you want to avoid supporting a grocery store that stifles retail wages and emerging environmental laws, among other things, it's a nice option. 

As of now, Uber Eats will only deliver from Tampa stores, but plans to expand to nearby Pinellas County locations in the future.
