Gastonia becomes home to new Dollar General store

October 3, 2018 by  

A new location of Dollar General recently opened on Linwood Road in Gastonia.

Although this store is only about three miles away from the next nearest one, the company commented that its philosophy is to facilitate shopping for potential customers. The senior vice president of real estate and development, Dan Nieser, said that Dollar General’s mission is to offer a wide assortment of merchandise, quality products at affordable prices, and locations that are convenient for customers.

Angela Petkovic, a spokesperson for the company, reinforced this in saying that stores are typically located within a three- to five-mile radius of a neighborhood, or are no more than a 10-minute drive

Neiser added that in addition to Dollar General’s offering of national name brands and the company’s own private brands, this store also offers special items for parties and home décor.

Dollar General’s store layout is a little different to most retailers. At the center of the store are seasonal items, coolers are at the front, and special signs are posted to delineate the various departments.

Neiser also said that the new store brings between 6 and 10 new jobs to the area, so business card printing companies may see an uptick in orders. Banner printing companies can also be hired to promote openings of such stores and ensure residents are aware of their openings.
