Grass Lake Dollar General Slated for Mid-Summer Opening
Grass Lake’s Dollar General, the 16th to open in Jackson County is slated for a “mid-summer” opening according to Laura Somerville, Corporate Communications for Dollar General.
“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.”
She continued “The store will employ approximately 6-10 employees, depending on the individual 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.”
Weather and other construction factors will impact the opening of the store. Once they get closer to the end of the construction, they will be able to narrow down the grand opening date.
Progress continues at the construction site as the parking lot has been completed and the exterior walls are up. The mild winter has helped the progress continue ahead of schedule.
