The company said it will open 975 new stores in the United States this year. Dollar General will also remodel 1,000 older stores with new queues to boost impulse purchases in the last minute. He will also take care of his health and beauty sections.
The dollar general appears to be building stores in rural areas where a large box retailer or grocery store is not within 15 or 20 miles . This gives the company close proximity to buyers and forces visits to the most frequent shops. The company states that 75% of its offices are in the city with 20,000 or fewer people.
"While the economy is going very well, our core customer continues to struggle," said chief executive of general dollar Todd Vasos to analysts last year.
The general dollar rose even during the holidays. Dollar General's sales in stores that have been open for at least a year increased 4% during the most recent quarter compared to a year earlier, exceeding analyst expectations.
The closure of the US government helped the sales of the General Dollar because the Department of Agriculture canceled the February SNAP benefits in advance, the company said. It has also received an increase from buyers who buy food and household products, such as kitchen utensils and small appliances.
The general dollar said that offering fruit and vegetables in stores in rural and urban food deserts can "drive an enormous amount of traffic".
