    AVENEL, N.J. -- In an unusual move for a regional grocery cooperative, Foodtown here is in the process of renovating two Winn-Dixie stores in south Florida that it purchased earlier this year, and is expected to reopen the stores under the Foodtown banner in the next several months.

    The stores are located in South Wind Plaza in West Palm Beach, and Carriage Hills Plaza in Davie. Foodtown had also purchased a third Winn-Dixie store in Plantation, Fla., but sold it to Wal-Mart, which plans a Neighborhood Market store, according to a report in the Sun-Sentinel.

    Foodtown has more than 60 locations in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

    Foodtown's Ajay Dhawan told the newspaper he was not ready to divulge his strategy, but said he expects to buy more stores in Florida.
