Dollar General announced late-Wednesday it has completed the purchase of 41 former Wal-Mart Express locations across 11 states, including several in this area.
Dollar General said they anticipate relocating into each of the purchased sites no later than October 2016.
Former Wal-Mart Express stores in the area purchased by Dollar General include locations in Four Oaks, Princeton, Pikeville, Coats, Broadway, and Carthage, NC. Dollar General also plans to operate the fueling stations that are present at 37 of the 41 locations.
“Dollar General is excited to add these locations to our existing store base. We look forward to the opportunity to better serve our customers in these communities by continuing to provide the convenience and value they expect from Dollar General,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s chief executive officer.
Communities served by the newly-relocated stores will enjoy a fresh DG16 layout with additional sales floor square feet, complete with expanded offerings such as fresh meat and produce, all designed to make shopping easier for customers.
