SALISBURY, N.C – Bottom Dollar Food is continuing its expansion efforts in the greater Philadelphia market with the opening of a new store tomorrow at 7900 Roosevelt Blvd. in Philadelphia. The first 200 customers at the store will receive a free Bottom Dollar Food reusable bag filled with groceries.

"Friday's opening marks our fourth store in the city of Philadelphia, and we invite the local community to come experience our unbelievable prices on fresh produce, quality meats, and mix of private brand and national brand items," said Bottom Dollar Food President Meg Ham.
