Dollar General Enters North Dakota With New Store Construction

by Katie Lee

Goodlettsville, Tenn. — Dollar General is underway on the construction of five new stores in southeastern North Dakota. The stores are expected to open in spring 2017 and, when completed, will expand the company’s presence to 44 states across the country.

Stores are currently under construction in the following locations: Oakes (Dickey County); Ellendale (Dickey County); Hankinson (Richland County); Hillsboro (Traill County); and Gwinner (Sargent County).

These five stores will offer customers the traditional Dollar General store format, which is approximately 9,100 total building square footage and 7,400 sales floor square footage. The stores’ layout provides a customer-friendly format with fast checkout, as seasonal products are displayed in the center of the stores, departments are easily recognizable with visible signage and coolers are conveniently located at the front of the stores. Construction began on all five stores this summer.

Dollar General plans to identify additional areas for new store growth in the state. Dollar General most recently expanded from stores in 40 states to 43 states with the grand opening of stores in Maine, Rhode Island and Oregon in March 2015.

Dollar General Corporation operated 13,000 stores as of August 13, 2016. For more information, visit
