The latest Dollar General store in Nelson County is now under construction in Piney River of Southern Nelson County. It’s expected to open later this year.
“At this time, a grand opening is slated for late summer 2018, but understand that construction progress may alter this date,” Angela Petkovic from Dollar General’s Corporate Headquarters in Goodlettsville, Tennessee.
Once completed the Piney River Dollar General joins the most recent one in Nelson that opened last year in Nellysford.
“When choosing store locations, meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority. The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice. We know convenience is a major factor in our customers’ shopping decisions as we generally serve customers within a three to five mile radius, or 10 minute drive. We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration.
The store will employ approximately 6-10 employees, depending on the individual needs of the store. Anyone interested in joining one of America’s fastest-growing retailers may apply for available positions online at www.dollargeneral.com/careers, Ms. Petkovic continued.
We’ll update more as progress continues with the construction.
