Two dollar stores to open this summer


MAGOFFIN – Two more dollar stores are scheduled to open this year in Magoffin, branching out to communities out in the county. 

Dollar General confirmed with the Independent earlier this month that they are currently under construction on two new locations in Salyersville, one at 415 Bloomington LP (near the former Millard-Hensley school), and the other at 26 Mill Branch Road.  

While construction progress may alter the schedule, right now both locations are slated for grand openings for this summer.

Angela Petkovic with Dollar General said, “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.”

Both stores are expected to employ six to 10 employees, depending on the individual needs of the store. 

The Independent will report on the progress of the construction as updates become available.
