Dollar General Announces Purchase of 41 Former Walmart Express Stores

July 27, 2016
Dollar General (NYSE:DG) announced today it has completed the purchase of 41 former Walmart Express locations across 11 states.  Dollar General anticipates relocating 40 existing Dollar General stores into the purchased sites by October 2016 and entering one new market as part of the purchase.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.   
 
“Dollar General is excited to add these locations to our existing store base.  We look forward to the opportunity to better serve our customers in these communities by continuing to provide the convenience and value they expect from Dollar General,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s chief executive officer.
 
Communities served by the newly-relocated stores will enjoy a fresh DG16 layout with additional sales floor square feet, complete with expanded offerings such as fresh meat and produce, all designed to make shopping easier for customers.  Dollar General also intends to operate the fueling stations in 37 of these locations.
