Dollar General in new expansion
Dollar General’s retail footprint is getting closer to encompassing all 50 states.
The discounter announced that it is currently building new stores in Washington and Wyoming. When completed, these stores will expand Dollar General’s presence to 46 states throughout the country.
Stores are currently under construction in Centralia, Washington (Lewis County); Cathlamet, Washington (Wahkiakum County) and Pine Bluffs, Wyoming (Laramie County). The locations are scheduled to celebrate grand openings in early fiscal year 2020. Dollar General operated 15,836 stores in 44 states as of August 2, 2019.
“We look forward to expanding our footprint into Washington and Wyoming and the opportunity to serve new customers with value and convenience through our mission of Serving Others,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior VP of real estate and store development. “At Dollar General, our customers are at the center of all we do. We believe the addition of each new Dollar General store presents positive economic growth for the communities we serve through the creation of local career opportunities and the ability for customers to purchase affordable, quality items in our easy-to-shop, small-box format.”
