PITTSBURGH — Bottom Dollar Food is planning to open its first seven stores in this market Jan. 26, the company said Friday, followed by another round of seven openings in Western Pennsylvania and Youngstown, Ohio, on Feb. 9.
The chain's parent company, Brussels-based Delhaize Group, introduced Bottom Dollar Food into the Philadelphia area last year and recently said it would focus on expanding its presence in Pennsylvania and Ohio, while shuttering or converting older — and often larger — stores in Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia.
The Pittsburgh-area openings will include appearances by for Pittsburgh Steelers players and private-label giveaways.
