Serving Others: Dollar General Celebrates Grand Opening with Donations



Recently, Dollar General demonstrated its commitment to Serving Others during a grand opening celebration at its newest store location in McDonough, Georgia on October 26, 2019.

On a beautiful fall Georgia morning, customers arrived early to get a prime spot in line for grand opening festivities and help Dollar General celebrate its newest Henry County store grand opening. The day kicked off with customers enjoying coffee, water and breakfast bars from Dollar General’s newest private brand, Good & Smart®. The first 200 customers also received a $10 Dollar General gift card, as well as a free tote bag with complimentary product samples from some of America’s most trusted brands and Dollar General’s own quality private brands.

Before the official grand opening, Dollar General presented three McDonough schools each with $2,000 donations to highlight its commitment to literacy and education in the communities it calls home. Representatives from East Lake Elementary School, Union Grove Middle School and Union Grove High School gathered for photos while parents from East Lake Elementary who attended the grand opening celebration thanked Dollar General for its contribution to their school.

At Dollar General, we believe our small-box footprint and product assortment helps our customers stretch their budgets, and each new store brings positive economic impact to the towns and cities we call home. Further, our stores provide customers with many components of a healthy diet such as milk, eggs, bread, cheese, frozen and canned vegetables, proteins, grains, canned fruits and more.  Whether it’s creating new and local career opportunities, providing customers a more convenient location to purchase the items they need or helping communities Dollar General is proud to serve customers in more than 16,000 locations in 44 states.

Dollar General looks forward to continuing to serve the McDonough and Henry County communities at its newest location on Highway 155 North.
