The new Dollar General stores at 303 North Goldsboro Street in Pikeville and 509 Dr. Donnie H. Jones Blvd West in Princeton are slated to have its soft openings by this Saturday, September 10. In its expanded format, Dollar General will offer area residents a convenient new place to shop for essentials including fresh meat, produce and fuel at everyday low prices.
Dollar General will celebrate Pikeville’s official grand opening on Saturday, September 24 and Princeton’s official grand opening on Saturday, October 1. Both events will begin at 8 a.m. At each event, the first 50 adult customers will receive a complimentary three-pound package of ground beef, the first 100 adult customers will receive a $10 Dollar General gift card and the first 200 shoppers will receive a Dollar General tote bag with assorted samples, among other giveaways. Donuts and coffee will be served in the morning while hotdogs and drinks will be available beginning at 11 a.m.
“Dollar General is committed to delivering a pleasant shopping experience that includes a convenient location, a wide assortment of merchandise and great prices on quality products,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We hope our Barnstead customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new location.”
The new stores are approximately 12,000 square feet, compared to a traditional Dollar General format that is approximately 9,100 square feet. The additional 3,000 square feet will allow Dollar General to provide fresh meat and produce, in addition to the value of America’s most trusted brands and our own private brands that customers expect from Dollar General. The new store will also provide customers with the fresh DG-16 layout, which provides a more customer-friendly format with faster checkout.
Additionally, the new store will employ approximately 15 employees, depending on the individual needs of the store. Anyone interested in joining the Dollar General team may visit the Career section at www.dollargeneral.com/careers.
