Bottom Dollar Food Coming to Pittsburgh, Youngstown, Ohio, Markets
Discount grocer Bottom Dollar Food, a division of the Delhaize Group, plans to open 14 stores in the greater Pittsburgh and Youngstown, Ohio, markets, with most stores scheduled to be up and running early next year. The chain expects to hire more than 600 people to work at the locations.
“Customers will find Bottom Dollar Food unique because we carry private brands and the national brands that matter most, and offer a meaningful, efficient assortment of fresh produce, meat and other products,” noted Bottom Dollar Food president Meg Ham. “Additionally, we provide our customers an energetic and lighthearted shopping experience.”
The stores will be located in Pittsburgh; Bridgeville, Pa.; Penn Hills, Pa.; Baldwin, Pa.; Butler, Pa.; Shannon, Pa.; Ambridge, Pa.; McKeesport, Pa.; Aliquippa, Pa.; Carnegie, Pa.; and Youngstown.
“We are very fortunate to have a strong emerging banner that we can continue to grow in new markets,” continued Ham. “We have a great work environment and are always looking for talented, energetic people to join our team as we create new jobs in the community.”
To mark its entry into a new market, Bottom Dollar Food is donating $10,000 to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank’s "Farm Stand" and "Produce" to People programs, which provide fresh produce to low-income neighborhoods at little or no cost.
Salisbury, N.C.-based Bottom Dollar Food opened its first store in High Point, N.C., in 2005, and opened its first store in Pennsylvania five years later. The banner has since expanded to 47 stores in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including 17 locations in the greater Philadelphia market.
