The new location features a layout that is supposed to make shopping easier and simpler for customers. Some of the store’s new features include seasonal products in the center of the store, easily recognizable departments with signage and coolers at the front of the store.
Dollar General says its stores focus on national brands and private brands of food, housewares, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health and beauty care products. About 25 percent of the merchandise in Dollar General is sold for just $1 or less.
