On Friday Bottom Dollar Food said it would close all 66 locations by January 15, and all 2,200 workers would lose their jobs. The company said the employees would receive severance pay, and some would receive job counseling services.

Bottom Dollar, a subsidiary of Belgian-based Delhaize Group, announced in November it would sell its locations to Aldi, which has yet to announce its plans for the stores.
