This Low-Cost Grocery Store Is Expanding to a New State

A new definition of value is coming to the Gem State! Dollar General just announced plans for an expansion to its 47th state with the addition of a store in Athol, Idaho. The location is currently under construction and the plan is for it to open in the spring of 2022.

The low-cost chain sells a range of goods including household necessities and beauty products but has recently ramped up its commitment to becoming a destination for cheap and healthy supplies and food.

As of July 2021, Dollar General estimated that about 75% of all Americans live within five miles of one of its 17,000+ stores. Adding things like cough and cold medicine, dental necessities, other medical and health aids, feminine hygiene products, and fresh produce to those stores would give millions of people—including Idahoans soon—access to these items that they normally may not have.

Here's what Dollar General's senior vice president of real estate and development Dan Nieser said about the expansion in a press release:

"Dollar General is committed to helping customers save time and money on everyday essentials, and we look forward to bringing our convenience and value to Idaho shoppers…We look forward to welcoming new customers into our first Idaho store when the project is completed early next year and to continue serving customers and communities through our mission of serving others."

Out of the 17,000+ Dollar Generals, Texas alone has over 1,600 individual locations. After the chain's Idaho location opens next year, only Montana, Alaska, and Hawaii will remain without a store.

This expansion is part of the chain's 2021 goal to add 1,050 new units after sales grew year over year. In 2020 it also opened 1,000 new stores, remodeled 1,670 existing ones, and closed 67, according to Supermarket News.
