Chain to hire 300, open 8 South Jersey groceries


North Carolina-based Bottom Dollar Food says it's going to hire 300 for 8 new stores in South Jersey. Stores will open: in the 2700 block of S. Broad St., Trenton, and the 1400 block of US 130 North, Cinnaminson, on March 2; on April 13 at US 130 and Farnsworth Ave.; and later in the year in Edgewater Park, Bellmawr, Woodbury, Mount Holly, and East Windsor (also on US 130).

The new stores join 5 existing South Jersey Price Choppers, and 13 more in Philadelphia and its Pennsylvania suburbs, part of a surge of low-end non-union grocers competing with market leaders Shop-Rite and Acme Markets.
