Dollar General Corporation of Goodlettsville, TN is actually thriving during the recession. Unlike many businesses, Dollar General is expecting to hire 6,000 new employees and open 625 new stores this year. I doubt we will be seeing many other chains announcing such large-scale expansion plans for 2011.
Dollar General operates 9,200 stores in 35 states. The expansion will add three more states to that list. Residents of Nevada, New Hampshire and Connecticut will soon be getting stores near them!
The Pottstown area has two Dollar General stores located in the North End Shopping Center and Stowe Crossing.
