GROWING DOLLARS
Dollar General
Bargain-hunting Texans will be happy to know that Tennessee-basedDollar General plans to open 625 new stores across its existing 35-state operating area as well as three new states: Connecticut, Nevada, and New Hampshire in FY ’11. While the number of newTexas stores hasn’t been determined, the state already has more than 1,000, more than any other state, Dollar General spokeswomanTawn Earnest tells us. Dollar General will expand its presence in new suburban, rural, and metro markets with 7,000 to 8,000 SFstores, Tawn says. The company also plans to remodel or relocate 550 stores. “We've worked hard to enhance the shopping experience, adding new brands, revamping our private brands, and refining our site-selection process. Now, we're comfortable with accelerating our growth,” Tawn tells us. That reminds us we need more toothpaste and sunflower seeds. (Yeah, we know, weird combination.)
