Mar. 30, 2012

SALISBURY, N.C. – Bottom Dollar Food, a discount grocer with expansion efforts underway in the greater Philadelphia market, announced today plans to open a store in Philadelphia’s Brewerytown and Fairmount communities, which will be the area’s first grocery store in more than a decade.

“We are pleased to announce plans to open a Bottom Dollar Food store later this year in the Brewerytown and Fairmount neighborhoods,” said Bottom Dollar Food President Meg Ham. “Bottom Dollar Food is committed to providing unbelievable prices on fresh produce, quality meats, and private and national brand products at our additional location in the city of Philadelphia, and we look forward to partnering with the surrounding community to serve our customers.”

Bottom Dollar Food representatives joined Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter and various city and state officials, along with representatives from Soloff Development, in a groundbreaking ceremony today at the site of the future store at North 31st Street and West Girard Avenue.

“One of the goals of Greenworks Philadelphia is to bring local food within a 10-minute walk of 75 percent of residents by 2015,” Mayor Nutter said. “This new grocery store will bring fresh, healthy food to Philadelphians in the Fairmount and Brewerytown neighborhoods where it wasn’t easily accessible before. Today’s groundbreaking is the result of a lot of hard work by the city, the developers, the neighborhood and our partners to make this site work. This Bottom Dollar Food store will meet the needs of the neighborhood in a sustainable and responsible way.”

With a strong focus on price, Bottom Dollar Food has a “We Won’t Be Beat” guarantee and 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 on Oct. 8, 2010. The discount grocer has 32 locations throughout the greater Philadelphia region, and each store is approximately 18,000 square feet.
