Providing extremely low prices on produce, deli, meat, cheese and grocery items, the Pittsburgh-based company's 46,000 square-foot store will feature a 3,800 square-foot produce section offering more than 230 conventional and organic produce items, a cheese department with more than 60 specialty items, a full-service deli and a fully-stocked meat department featuring meat cut and ground fresh in-store.

The new Good Cents Grocery + More will also offer groceries with a popular mix of name brand national and regional brands alongside Food Club and Valu Time store brands.

"This is the format people have been waiting for," said Good Cents Senior Vice President John Tedesco.  "Think of it as the missing link between discount stores and supermarkets.

"Good Cents reflects the real fresh, not real fancy experience for customers who know how to recognize a great deal on high quality products," Tedesco added.  "Good Cents comes to Pittsburgh at the perfect time, as families continue to struggle through a sluggish economy and rising food and commodity costs."

"While today's shoppers are certainly looking to stretch their food budgets through affordable-priced shopping, they shouldn't have to sacrifice quality and freshness," said Tedesco.  "Our unique Good Cents format offers customers outstanding fresh produce, meat, deli and cheese items at prices that make 'cents.'"

The store will celebrate its opening on Sunday with a ribbon cutting at 8 a.m. and donations made to the Ross Township Police Department, Berkeley Hills Fire Company and North Hills Community Outreach. The McKnight Road Good Cents will employ 100 Team Members and will offer more than 7,000 items.  Store hours are daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.  Good Cents Grocery + More accepts all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover), as well as cash, debit cards, EBT and WIC.  The store also accepts manufacturer coupons.

To keep prices low, Good Cents focuses on lower operating costs, without compromising quality or a clean and safe shopping environment.  To that end, Good Cents does not accept checks as a form of tender, and also encourages customers to bring their own traditional and reusable bags.  Customers may also purchase grocery bags for a nominal fee.
