The company said Thursday that it will open 975 new stores in the United States this year. Dollar General will also result in 1,000 older stores with new line queue to bring last minute buying impulse. It also organizes sections of health and beauty.
General Dollar looks at stores in rural areas where a large retailer box or grocery store is not within 15 or 20 miles. It provides close to the company to consumers and forces more frequent visits to the store. The company says that 75% of its locations are in towns with 20,000 or fewer people.
"While the economy is good, our core continues to struggle with customers," chief executive officer of Dollar General Todd Vasos told analysts last year.
Dollar General still grew up in the holidays. Dollar General's sales in stores are open at least one year by 4% increase during its latest quarter compared to a year earlier, to beat expectations by analysts.
US government shutdown helped the General sales dollars because the Department of Agriculture gave the SNAP benefits of February in advance, the company said. It also got help from more consumers buying food and home products, such as kitchenware and small appliances.
The General Overall said that providing fruit and vegetable stores in rural and urban food deserts can "drive a huge amount of traffic."
