Dollar General’s newest store at 1529 Broadway in Fountain Hill opened late last month, and the store will host a grand opening celebration there this Saturday, according to a news release.
The official grand opening will be held Saturday, April 14 at 8 a.m. with free prizes and special deals. Additionally, the first 50 adult shoppers at the store will receive a $10 Dollar General gift card and the first 200 shoppers will receive a Dollar General tote bag with complimentary product samples, among other giveaways.
“Dollar General is committed to delivering a pleasant shopping experience that includes a convenient location, a wide assortment of merchandise and great prices on quality products,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We hope our area customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new location.”
The Fountain Hill Dollar General is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is located in a building that formerly housed a Bottom Dollar supermarket, which closed in early 2015. Other nearby stores are located in Hellertown and South Allentown.
Dollar General stores sell a variety of national name brands and private brands of food, housewares, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health/beauty products.
“The store’s fresh layout is designed to make shopping simple for customers,” the news release said. “Seasonal products are displayed in the center of the store, departments are easily recognizable with visible signage and coolers are conveniently located at the front of the store.”
Most Dollar General stores employ approximately six to 10 people, depending on need. Anyone interested in joining the Dollar General team can visit the Career section at DollarGeneral.com.
“Dollar General is deeply involved in the communities it serves and is an ardent supporter of literacy and education,” the news release said. “At the cash register of every Dollar General store, customers interested in learning how to read, speak English or prepare for their high school equivalency test can pick up a brochure with a postage-paid reply card that can be mailed in for a referral to a local organization that offers free literacy services.”
“Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $140 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than nine million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education,” the company stated.
