The store, which according to reports could begin construction next month and open as early as next year, would also be the first new, full-service grocery store in the Garfield neighborhood in more than 25 years, according to Bloomfield-Garfield Corp., a community development group here. A Giant Eagle in the area closed in 1987, the group noted.

Bottom Dollar, a division of Salisbury, N.C.-based Delhaize America, operates 12 other stores in the Pittsburgh area. Bloomfield-Garfield said local residents had worked out differences in proposed plans with Bottom Dollar’s developer, Commercial Properties of Raleigh, N.C., allowing the project to go forward.
