Bottom Dollar Food may be gone, but its stores will live on.

Aldi is opening four new supermarkets in locations that recently closed after being under the Bottom Dollar banner.

It’s part of a larger plan by Aldi to gain a strong foothold on the Philadelphia low-price grocery market. Aldi announced plans to open 24 new stores in this area by the end of this year — 21 of those stores at former Bottom Dollar Food sites. To do so, the company plans to hire 350 people.

In March, Aldi purchased Delhaize Group’s Bottom Dollar Food real estate assets. Bottom Dollar closed 46 local stores (and 20 more near Pittsburgh) when it shut down operations in January 2015.

The four newly announced Aldi markets will be at the following locations. Grand openings at each store will be held on August 20:

  • 3101 West Girard Ave. in Philadelphia
  • 440 US Hwy. 130, Ste. 22 in East Windsor, N.J.

  • 812 North Delsea Dr. in Glassboro, N.J.

  • 262C Route 130 in Bordentown, N.J.
