retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Delhaize-owned Bottom Dollar Food said yesterday that it plans to open eight new stores in New Jersey, a move that more than doubles its presence in the state, during 2012 and 2013.

The first of the units are scheduled to open in Trenton and Cinnaminson this Friday, followed by a store in Bordentown on April 13.

Other communities slated to get new Bottom Dollar stores are Edgewater Park, Bellmawr, Woodbury, Mt. Holly, and East Windsor.

The openings will bring the number of Bottom Dollar stores in New Jersey to 13.

In describing the stores, Bottom Dollar emphasizes that they have a “We Won’t Be Beat” guarantee, “where stores 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.”
