Bottom Dollar Food

2010

 

Bottom Dollar Food is a discount grocery chain run by Food Lion LLC, which itself is a subsidiary of Delhaize Group.

Bottom Dollar sells a limited-selection of both national brands and private label products at low prices. These stores have no bakeries or delis and more items are prepackaged. Customers buy the bags used to sack their own groceries at Bottom Dollar. Stores also use alternative display and stocking techniques such as cut cases on shelves, using pallets and dump bins to reduce costs. Food Lion opened the first Bottom Dollar model in High Point, N.C. on September 21, 2005. As of December 2009, Bottom Dollar had 28 stores in North Carolina, Maryland, and Virginia. In late 2010, Bottom Dollar opened 17 stores in the Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley areas.

The stores sell the Hannaford brand as its store brand.

Bottom Dollar competes with other discount supermarket chains, such as PriceRite, Save-A-Lot, Aldi, and C-Town Supermarkets.
