“Dollar General is committed to delivering a pleasant shopping experience that includes a convenient location, a wide assortment of merchandise and great prices on quality products,” Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development, said.  “We hope our area customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new location.”

“Traditional Dollar General stores employ approximately six to 10 people, depending on the need,” officials said in the release.

Media Relations Coordinator Angela Petkovic said the new store’s layout was designed with customers in mind.

“Dollar General stores offer convenience and value to customers by providing a focused selection of national name brands and private brands of food, housewares, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health/beauty products,” Media Relations Coordinator Angela Petkovic said. “Additionally, the new store will provide customers with stylish, on-trend home décor and a party preparation selection, in addition to the same categories, brands and products customers trust Dollar General to carry. The store’s fresh layout is designed to make shopping simple for customers.”
