Dollar General has located a store just off the busy state highway and will host an opening event Aug. 24 beginning at 8 a.m., according to a press release. Customers can enjoy special deals and free prizes at the event. Additionally, the first 50 shoppers will receive a $10 Dollar General gift card, and the first 200 shoppers will receive a Dollar General tote bag, among other giveaways.
“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,” said Gayle Aertker, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We hope our Childersburg customers will continue to enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new location.”
According to the press release, the new location features a fresh layout and new features including seasonal products in the center of the store, recognizable departments with visible signage and coolers that are more conveniently located at the front of the store.
Dollar General stores provide a focused selection of national brands and private brands of food, housewares, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health and beauty care products.
A second store location in Childersburg is on First Street.
In addition, the national retailer is an ardent supporter of literacy and education. At the cash register of every Dollar General store, customers interested in learning how to read, speak English or get their General Education Diploma (GED) can pick up a brochure with a postage-paid reply card that can be mailed in for a referral to a local organization that offers free literacy services.
Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $81 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 4.7 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
