GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Bi-Lo is laying off more than 100 workers at its former corporate headquarters in Mauldin.
Spokesman Brian Wright said Monday 130 employees were being laid off starting next month because of the company's merger with Winn-Dixie.
Bi-Lo LLC bought the Jacksonville, Fla.-based grocery store chain in 2011 for $560 million. The newly merged company will be based in Florida.
Mauldin Mayor Dennis Raines says the news is troubling but says he's been assured by Bi-Lo officials that the company will not pull out of the city entirely.
Bi-Lo was founded in South Carolina in 1961. In 2010, the company completed a financial restructuring and emerged from protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. bankruptcy code. The merger was announced the next year.
