March 19, 2019
Construction is well underway on a new Dollar General in the Sherrodsville area. A grand opening for new store located at 4364 Cumberland Road is slated for late spring 2019.
"When choosing store locations, meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority. The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice. We know convenience is a major factor in our customers' shopping decisions as we generally serve customers within a three to five mile radius, or 10 minute drive. We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration" said Angela Petkovic, Dollar General Public Relations Officer when asked why they chose Sherrodsville for their new location.
The store will provide approximately 7,300 sales square feet for selling quality name-brand and private brand merchandise such as health and beauty products, home cleaning supplies, housewares, stationery, seasonal items and basic clothing. We also sell an assortment of packaged foods, as well as some refrigerated foods and frozen foods. In addition to high quality private brands, Dollar General sells products from America's most-trusted brands such as Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark, Unilever, Kellogg's, General Mills, Nabisco, Hanes, PepsiCo and Coca-Cola.
"We are excited to have another Dollar General in our County to provide quick access to the goods we need everyday. Anytime we can turn green space into a business space and employee people it helps build our community" said Christopher Modranski, Economic Development Director.
The store will employee 6-10 individuals depending on the needs of the store. Anyone interested in joining one of America's fastest-growing retailers may apply for available positions online at www.dollargeneral.com/careers.
"It's exciting to see new retail business in Carroll County, Dollar General has a proven track record in our county. Thank you for providing additional conveniences and new jobs to the Sherrodsville community" said Commissioner Robert E. Wirkner.
"Dollar General gives its customers more than everyday low prices on merchandise as part of its mission of Serving Others. Dollar General is deeply involved in the communities it serves and is an ardent supporter of literacy and education through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, which awards grants each year to nonprofit organizations, schools and libraries within a 20-mile radius of a Dollar General store or distribution center to support adult, family, summer and youth literacy programs" said Petkovic.
