Dollar General also announced store growth plans that include the addition of approximately 1,900 new stores by the end of fiscal 2017, along with plans to remodel or relocate 1,775 stores during the same time period.
“Dollar General has a powerful strategic plan that enables us to drive both the top line and bottom line to deliver strong financial returns as outlined in our growth model over the long-term.
