Founded in 1955, Dollar General is one of the nation’s largest small-box discount retailers.  The company is headquartered in Goodlettsville, Tennessee.

Weather permitting the structure will be fully enclosed and the site should look substantially complete by Thanksgiving.  It will take about a month to finish the inside and prepare the building for opening.  The store’s Grand Opening is anticipated to occur mid-January 2015.
