Dollar General opens 20,000th store

Location in Alice, Texas, becomes historic

The 20,000th Dollar General store opened in Alice, Texas, on Feb. 24.

The milestone grand opening began at 9 a.m., and after the celebratory ribbon cutting shoppers received a complimentary tote bag filled with product samples from vendors and were served refreshments from Dollar General private brand Clover Valley.

Dollar General also awarded $20,000 to support educational and tutoring programs with a $10,000 donation each to Alicia Salinas Public Library and to the Boys & Girls Club of Alice.

“Today marks an incredible milestone in Dollar General’s history,” said Steve Deckard, Dollar General’s executive vice president of store operations and development. “From our first general store to today’s 20,000th store opening, our mission to serve others and help customers stretch their budget remains strong. We believe each store provides a positive impact in our hometowns through convenient access to affordable essentials, career growth opportunities for employees, and the ability for local nonprofits, schools, and libraries to advance through Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants.

“On behalf of the DG leadership team, I would like to share my gratitude to the entire DG family for its ongoing commitment to our customers and communities in helping us reach this milestone.”
