Southeastern Grocers said on its website that it has chosen to voluntarily implement a court-supervised, prepackaged restructuring agreement to reduce its debt. It hopes to emerge from the process within 90 days.

“The story for our company and for our iconic, heritage banners is still being written. As part of this transformational process, our three-year plan will create stunning, remodeled stores in a significant portion of our footprint. This revitalization will also provide our customers with fresh, new concepts and products to cater to the local tastes and needs of the neighborhoods we serve.”
