Meadville, Mississippi Celebrates "Dollar General Day"

March 07, 2018
In early March, Dollar General executives traveled to Meadville, Mississippi to celebrate “Dollar General Day” following the remodel and expansion of its store that recently added produce.

In late 2017, Meadville Mayor Lane Reed reached out to Jason Reiser, Dollar General’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, to inquire about the opportunity for Dollar General to provide Meadville citizens with fresh produce. After reviewing the mayor’s request, the Dollar General team  remodeled the store in February 2018 to provide Franklin County residents with fresh produce.

Dollar General’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, Jason Reiser, and executive vice president of store operations, Jeff Owen, as well as other Dollar General team members were present for the store’s festivities.

The Dollar General team, Meadville Mayor Pro Tem Charles Calcote and leadership from the city of Meadville celebrate “Dollar General Day” on Friday, March 2, 2018.
