This new Bottom Dollar Store is awful. It's tacky. It's not cute. It looks like it came straight out of the GHETTO. Our neighbourhood has half-million dollar waterfront condos in it - Not exactly the right place for your ghetto superstore. Get it OUT of our neighbourhood and give us our REAL grocery store back. Until then, not only will I NOT be shopping at Bottom Dollar, but I will continue to boycott Food Lion and any grocery store owned by your company. As will all of my friends and neighbours. You'll be losing a LOT of money. Bet your bottom dollar on it.

I live in Gaithersburg, MD and I think that the new Bottom Dollar Store is terrible. The meat quality is poor, by the time I thaw it out to use it, it is has a funny smell and has to be thrown away. I have given up on lower prices because I waste more money than anything. Every now and then they run out of plastic bags (5 cents ones) and I have to pay $1.00 each for the cloth ones. Also the customer service is terrible. There is about 6-8 registers in the store but never more than 3 cashiers. The sales floor associates cannot answer any of our questions (if you can even find one.) I will not be shopping there anymore. I would rather spend more money and shop at a place that provides all of the service that Bottom Dollar does not. And a place where my family can acually eat the food after two days.

Tacky!!! Old, dirty fruit! Not so fresh meat! What are you thinking? Is this a another way of taking advantage of the community. Your ad sounds wonderful, till you get in the store to see high priced items. Wow! what a sad excuse for a store. No grocery bags! Are you serious! This is not a discount warehouse. Bring back Food Lion.

I predict Delhaize will be out of the supermarket business in the US wihin the next 10 years. They are like a ship without a rudder.

great concept! No Bags, ghetto feeling. I may suggest that they eliminate boxes and bottles as well. want a box of ceriel or rice ? Hold out your hand! Want milk? bring a bucket. Eliminate the refrigeration as well! Pick the maggots off the meat. Eliminate the expiration dates off products! Sell old shit from the 50s.

Personally I think that the bottom dollar does have its'over priced products but if you look hard enough and know how to "kick it up a notch" in the kitchen then this "ghetto store" The Bottom Dollar can be a penny pinchers' dream come true!

"Ghetto Store" Wow you snobs really need to get a grip!!! The food is the exactly the same as it is at food lion. Only alot cheaper!!!! The Meat is not old, as a matter of fact its great, much much better quality than Wal-mart which sucks!! So what if its not fancy, or you have to put your groceries in a box. At the end of the day, for those of us who really dont want to pay for atmosphere but want to be able to feed our familys its a wonderful change!!!! And one more thing since when does it make Fruit Loops taste better because when they are purchased on a red carpet. So people please ignore the snobs, On my first shopping trip I filled up my trunk with a weeks groceries of $54 bucks,$54 bucks!!! Thats a bargain. Way to go Food Lion!!!!!!!

No big deal. I stopped shopping at Food Lion years ago because of poor service, jammed aisles, and that stupid discount card.
