New Bottom Dollar stores opened today in Ambler, PA and in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. These stores represent the 42nd and 43rd stores in the Greater Philadelphia Market. Bottom Dollar now operates 62 stores in PA, NJ and OH. The discount grocery chain, a subsidiary of Delhaize, is still not profitable.
Weis Markets announced last week that it will close its Pottstown supermarket in the next couple weeks due to “continuing under-performance.” The 45,228 square foot store opened in 1995 and is in the same shopping center as Walmart. A new Giant opened in the last couple years less than a mile away. Despite the closure, Weis seems to be opening and renovating several stores.
