    Let us know when Dollar General builds across the street to give them competition. They will be tyring to outprice each other by pennies, and people will go for it. It's not a merchandise quality driven world anymore.

    Same here in VA.. The DG stores are going up in some areas that arent even 'towns'.... they seem to split the difference between the walmarts..

    I realize you are in SC - but Bristol VA is getting a cabelas and Bristol TN is getting a Bass Pro shops - both right off i-81 and within miles of each other..

    In MS they build a Dollar General at every wide spot in the road. Based on my scientific research (driving by) the stores seem to do well.

    First it was Rite Aid, Walgreens and CVS moving out of the strip malls and setting up shop across the street from each other every 5 miles, and now this.
    Here two new DG stores were built on opposite ends of town, probably less than four miles apart.

    Yeah the jury is still out as to whether or not this was a good idea. How much money was it that Bristol Va borrowed to lure Cabelas? 25 million? They justify it by claiming it will bring in a bazzilion new jobs. Sure, mostly minimum wage dead end retail jobs. In the mean time manufacturing jobs, which I can only assume pay better, are leaving the area.

    Which are they puting in. A Dollar General or a Dollar General Market. We have both within 6 miles apart. The Market does really well. Prices are competitive with big box stores. The stock on Dollar General is doing well. Seems the smaller grocery dry goods is doing well. Our area was one of the first test markets for the Market.

    I've been to the dollar store in town before. They are always busy, but it's awful. Hard to find stuff and never really what you needed. Then the stuff is cheaply made.

    I order most everything online now.
