SALISBURY, N.C – Bottom Dollar Food will open two additional stores in New Jersey on Friday, June 29 at 156 W. Browning Road in Bellmawr, N.J., and 4225 S. Route 130 in Edgewater Park, N.J.

The stores will open to the public at 8 a.m. following ribbon-cutting ceremonies. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

“In January, we announced plans to open several stores in New Jersey throughout this year and in 2013, and we look forward to serving customers at our Bellmawr and Edgewater Park locations,” said Bottom Dollar Food President Meg Ham. “Customers will find unbelievable prices on fresh produce, quality meats and a variety of private brand and national brand items at our stores.”

Bottom Dollar Food will donate to various schools, non-profit organizations and community programs in the Bellmawr and Edgewater Park communities as part of the grand opening festivities. Since announcing earlier this year its planned store openings in the Garden State, the discount grocer has donated $10,500 to local schools and organizations in New Jersey.

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.
