SALISBURY, N.C. – Bottom Dollar Food, a discount grocer with expansion efforts under way in the greater Philadelphia market, announced today plans to open eight additional stores in New Jersey.

"We have been pleased with customer reaction to our current five stores in New Jersey and we are very excited to continue serving customers at our additional locations in the market," said Bottom Dollar Food President Meg Ham. "New Jersey customers will find Bottom Dollar Food unique because of our unbelievably low prices on quality private brands and the national brands that matter most, and our meaningful, efficient assortment of fresh produce and meat."

Bottom Dollar Food new stores include the following locations, opening throughout 2012 and in 2013 (scheduled opening dates are provided below while openings for remaining stores are to be announced):

  • Broad Street, Woodbury, N.J.
  • Route 38, Mt. Holly, N.J.
  • Route 130 and Town Center Road, East Windsor, N.J.

On Friday, March 2, the stores in Trenton, N.J., and Cinnaminson, N.J., will open to the public at 8 a.m. following a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. The first 200 customers at each location will receive a free Bottom Dollar Food reusable bag filled with private brand products.

As part of the grand opening festivities on March 2, Bottom Dollar Food will donate $500 to the following schools: Albert E. Grice Middle School, Kisthardt Elementary School, McGalliard Elementary School and Trenton Central High School in Trenton, N.J.; and Cinnaminson High School, Cinnaminson Middle School, Eleanor Rush Intermediate School and New Albany Elementary School in Cinnaminson, N.J.

With a strong focus on price, Bottom Dollar Food has a "We Won’t Be Beat" guarantee, where stores will beat any competitor’s price on the same item by a penny. In addition, if a customer is unsatisfied with a purchase, all meats and produce come with a double-back guarantee that ensures an item is replaced and customers are given a full refund. Bottom Dollar Food also offers a double-money back guarantee on all private brand products.

Bottom Dollar Food opened its first store in the greater Philadelphia market, which encompasses stores in New Jersey, on Oct. 8, 2010.
