Dollar General is building new stores in Washington and Wyoming. When completed, these stores are expected to expand the company’s presence to 46 states throughout the country.
Stores are currently under construction in Centralia, Washington (Lewis County); Cathlamet, Washington (Wahkiakum County); and Pine Bluffs, Wyoming (Laramie County). These initial stores are scheduled to celebrate grand openings in early fiscal year 2020. Each store is expected to employ approximately six to 10 employees, depending on the individual needs of the store.
“We look forward to expanding our footprint into Washington and Wyoming and the opportunity to serve new customers with value and convenience through our mission of Serving Others,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s svp/real estate and store development. “At Dollar General, our customers are at the center of all we do. We believe the addition of each new Dollar General store presents positive economic growth for the communities we serve through the creation of local career opportunities and the ability for customers to purchase affordable, quality items in our easy-to-shop, small box format. We look forward to being a long-standing business partner in each of the communities we serve and to welcoming new customers into our stores when these projects are completed next year.”
