New Food Chain Moving Into Cinnaminson

Bottom Dollar Food is bringing its colorfully coded shopping experience to the township, while offering lower prices.

With the and Portobello Markets, Cinnaminson residents have been hard-pressed to find nearby stores to load up on groceries.

But, slated for December, discount grocer Bottom Dollar Food will open in the Main Line Shopping Center on Route 130, confirmed Bottom Dollar spokeswoman Tenisha Waldo. Since last winter, construction crews have been renovating the space vacated by the former produce store.

Bottom Dollar Food is a subsidiary of Delhaize America and is run by Food Lion LLC in North Carolina. The brightly colored lime green and orange stores average 18,000 square feet and boast low prices of a limited-selection of both national brands and private label products displayed in extra wide aisles. Color-coded pricing easily identifies the product prices and a quick reference tool for easy savings. Self-serve displays and no bakery help to keep prices competitive.

Bottom Dollar swiftly entered the area last year opening 19 stores in Pennsylvania. The Cinnaminson store will join New Jersey stores open in Marlton and Turnersville, with plans underway to open stores in Edgewater Park and Bordentown early next year.

“We look for energetic employees who have a passion for assisting customers,” said Waldo about the 30-35 associates each store hires.

Asked about the company’s rapid growth in the area, Waldo said the company looks for the best opportunities to serve local communities.

“It is a great potential for Bottom Dollar because it is an underserved area,” said Waldo.

By donating to local organizations, holding special events and offering promotional reusable Bottom Dollar Food bags filled with products, the company connects to the community and its local consumers, adds Waldo.

Terms of Bottom Dollar Food’s occupancy were that improvements such as new lights, curbing, sidewalks and re-asphalting be completed in the shopping center.

“I made a promise to the residents of Cinnaminson that we would get these strip malls shaped up,” said Anthony Minniti, director of economic development, during an earlier interview, referring to an ordinance passed in 2004 that states all landlords must refurbish their strip malls in Cinnaminson before new tenants lease space.

Minniti added that the idea is, if improvements are made, good tenants will want to occupy space in Cinnaminson.

“This is all about stimulating business for the township,” said Minniti.

The Bottom Dollar spokesperson still doesn't have an official opening date. I will keep you advised when I hear something.

@Bruce - I didn't apply for a job at Bottom Dollar - I merely supplied a link for someone who asked since I was already on their site. Just trying to help out a Cinnaminson neighbor!
