Goodlettsville, Tenn. — On Sept. 30, 2023, Dollar General marked a major milestone as it celebrated the grand opening of its first store in Montana. With the addition of the Columbia Falls store, DG now serves all 48 continental U.S. states.
“Today marks an exciting milestone in our history as we extend our ability to provide customers with convenient and affordable access to household essentials throughout all 48 continental states,” says Steve Deckard, Dollar General’s executive vice president of growth and emerging markets. “As America’s general store, we believe each new Dollar General represents positive economic impact, local job opportunities, community donations and literacy grant opportunities through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.”
The grand opening of the new Dollar General store in Montana included a $10,000 literacy donation to Ruder Elementary School. Nonprofit organizations, schools and libraries within a 15-mile radius of a Dollar General store are eligible to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants, which support adult, family, summer and youth literacy programs. Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2023, the Foundation has awarded more than $238 million to support nearly 20 million individuals improve their lives through literacy and education.

Elsewhere in the state, Dollar General is currently under construction on stores in Lincoln and Sanders counties, which are expected to open in fall 2023. The company plans to evaluate additional areas in the Montana market for future locations.
Founded in 1939, Dollar General operates approximately 19,488 Dollar General, DG Market, DGX and pOpshelf stores across the United States and Mi Súper Dollar General stores in Mexico. For more information, visit www.DollarGeneral.com.
