This thread is no fun without store pics/reviews...did DZA do anything meaningful to spiff up the stores, or are they minimal remodels like Save-A-Lot?

For the Penndel, PA store, they completely remodeeled the interior, removing any trace of Thriftway.  they also built a new entryway foyer, in the middle of the store, and sealed up the old A&P entry point.

Bottom Dollar Food has been slowly replacing the "Hannaford" and "Smart Option" brands with "My Essentials" brand.

Here's a recent pic i took of the exterior of the Bottom Dollar food, in Penndel, PA:

It's the old entrance to when this was a Centennial/Colonial A&P Supermarket, later Thriftway.

Here's a interior pic:

This is the back of the store, looking towards the right wall, where the old produce department for A&P was, and:

the back of the store, facing the left wall, where the old dairy department for A&P was.

and, of course, this is "My Essentials" brand, which is replacing the Food Lion/Hannaford/Harvey's/Smart option brands:

Great pics!  As for that rumored expansion into the Pittsburgh, PA market, it's a rumor no more:

BTW, Teresa F. Lindeman is one of the best writers about retailing working for any mainstream newspaper IMHO.

Bottom Dollar is coming to Northeast Philly, on the roosevelt boulavard, where Dugan's restaurant is, which apparently was an Acme til 1979 when it moved up to pennypack circle (which acme knocked down in 2002/3 and reopened a newly built store)  Dunno whether they are converting it or knocking it down and building it. (Sign says "Future Site of Bottom Dollar")

Most of the Bottom Dollar Food locations were former business and supermarkets.  The exception is the one on Bustelton Pike in Feasterville, which is a "New Build" by Delhaize USA.

Hundreds of new stores coming.  Funny, I remember reading the existing Bottom Dollar stores not doing all that great.

They are closing (or converting back to Food Lion) many of the stores in the traditional Food Lion areas - apparently most of these were Food Lions that they converted in the first place and were really too big for the Bottom Dollar format.

The newer ones are being built to the smaller size (or taking over smaller existing spaces).

As for the Northeast, they might do that, but it would depend if they want to compete with their Hannaford stores that are already in that area. 

That may be why the current expansion area is in PA, kind of filling between Food Lion and Hannaford areas?

It appears that these limited-assortment, price-impact grocery formats (Bottom Dollar Food, ALDI, Save-A-Lot) have a "sweet spot" of roughly 15,000-20,000 square feet, PriceRite being a notable exception.  I too have noticed that Bottom Dollar is working best for Delhaize in regions where it does not otherwise operate; PriceRite (which is operated by Wakefern itself and not its co-op members and is looking to expand into Virginia, the heart of Food Lion territory) likewise tries to avoid cannibalizing ShopRite. It's interesting that SuperValu doesn't appear to share the same concern about undercutting its traditional banners, operating Save-A-Lot wherever there are willing licensees, even operating many of the stores themselves.

In Hamden, CT, there is a PriceRite and a Shoprite only one mile apart.  I guess possible cannibalization is not a concern for Wakefern anymore.

Are those both Wakefern-owned stores? It's my understanding that all PriceRite stores are corporate.

In West Hartford there is a new Shoprite in the former Shaw's building on Kane Street (Exit 44 off I-84). And there is a Price Rite in part of the old Ames.
