Discount grocer Bottom Dollar Food employed 700 people by opening stores in the Pittsburgh and Youngstown markets and signed up 202,000 customers for its loyalty card program.

The chain marks its first anniversary in the region on Thursday with gift card drawings and other promotions at its 16 stores, plus food bank donations.

Salisbury, N.C.-based Bottom Dollar Food, part of Delhaize America, will open a store on Seventh Avenue in Homestead in 2013 and in New Castle and Warren, Ohio.

Fun facts: It sold 3 million pounds of bananas, 12 million eggs and 100,000 bottles of Heinz Ketchup in the first year.
