Dollar General sued by supermarket chain over food offering

Winn-Dixie claims that Dollar General is breaking restrictive lease covenants by selling too many food items in more than 100 shopping centers where Winn-Dixie is the anchor tenant, according to a suit filed in U.S. District Court in West Palm Beach, FL.

Winn-Dixie says Dollar General is knowingly violating non-compete provisions of its leases, and Dollar General disagrees and plans a rigorous defense.

The grocery industry will be watching this case closely, as there are thousands of leases with similar clauses in favor of supermarket anchors.
