We are currently in the due diligence phase for a new store on Highway 425 in Fountain Hill. This means we’re interested in adding a new location, but are going through the process of determining whether this store is a good fit for both Dollar General and the community. We have not committed to moving forward with this location at this time, but do anticipate a final decision will be made by early 2017.
When choosing store locations, meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority. The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice. We know convenience is a major factor in our customers’ shopping decisions as we generally serve customers within a three to five mile radius, or 10 minute drive. We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration.
