June 09, 2014

Major retailer to expand to 43 states by adding presence in Maine, Rhode Island and Oregon

GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (BUSINESS WIRE), June 09, 2014 - Dollar General (NYSE: DG) announced plans this week to expand its nationwide presence into three new states within the next year, increasing the company’s presence to 43 states across the country. The major discount retailer will begin construction on stores in Maine and Rhode Island this fall with plans to expand into Oregon in early 2015.

“It’s exciting to announce plans to add stores in three new states, which will give Dollar General locations in all northeastern states and a presence in the pacific northwest,” said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General’s chairman and CEO. “Announcing this expansion simultaneously with our 75th anniversary in 2014 further demonstrates Dollar General’s enduring legacy of Serving Others and providing customers quality, convenience and everyday low prices.”

Expansion into Maine and Rhode Island follows the company’s successful expansion into neighboring northeastern states in recent years. New stores in Oregon will increase the company’s visibility on the west coast after opening stores in California in 2012, including the company’s 10,000th store in Merced, California.

“Dollar General looks forward to serving customers in Maine, Rhode Island and Oregon with the incredible value and affordability that has enabled us to build such a loyal customer base in the 40 states we currently serve,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s chief operating officer. “Customers who are new to Dollar General in these states will enjoy our convenient locations, easy-to-shop store formats and wide variety of merchandise at consistently low prices. Families can count on Dollar General to help them save time and money, every day.”

Stores in Maine and Rhode Island will be served by its Bethel, Pennsylvania distribution center that celebrated its grand opening last week and Oregon stores plan to be served by its Lebec, California distribution center that opened in April 2012.
