Discount supermarket chain ALDI plans to reopen 20 of the 46 Bottom Dollar stores in the Philadelphia-area it shut down after acquiring the chain earlier this year.
The stores will be branded as ALDI locations. Five of the locations are in some of Philadelphia's poorest neighborhoods where access to low-cost, quality food is hard to come by.
Bottom Dollar, which was operated by Delhaize America, closed the grocery stores in mid-January as the sale progressed.
The remaining shuttered locations will be sold or leased to other retailers, the company said.
