Residents on the west end of town now have yet another place where they can purchase a gallon of milk or even a quart of motor oil. Earlier this month Dollar General at 921 W. F St., Oakdale opened its doors for a ‘soft opening.’
The newest addition to town business will celebrate the opening of its new location with a Grand Opening event this Saturday, Aug. 22 starting at 8 a.m.
Free prizes and special deals will be offered to Oakdale residents as the new location proves to be a convenient new place to shop for everyday essentials at low prices.
Additionally, the first 100 adult shoppers at the store will receive a $10 Dollar General gift card and the first 200 shoppers will receive a Dollar General tote bag, among other giveaways.
“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 Oakdale customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new location.”
Dollar General stores offer convenience and value to customers by providing a focused selection of national name brands and private brands of food, housewares, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health/beauty products. The store’s layout is designed to make shopping simple for customers. Seasonal products are displayed in the center of the store, departments are recognizable with visible signage and coolers are conveniently located at the front of the store.
Traditional Dollar General stores employ approximately six to 10 people, depending on the need. Persons interested in joining the Dollar General team may visit the Career section at www.dollargeneral.com.
Dollar General gives its customers more than everyday low prices on basic merchandise. Dollar General is deeply involved in the communities it serves and is an ardent supporter of literacy and education. At the cash register of every Dollar General store, customers interested in learning how to read, speak English or get their General Education Diploma (GED) can pick up a brochure with a postage-paid reply card that can be mailed in for a referral to a local organization that offers free literacy services. Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $100 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping nearly six million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
