Dollar General set for WilroyPublished 9:55pm Tuesday, June 11, 2013
A new Dollar General store will open on Wilroy Road by the end of the summer, a company spokeswoman confirms.
The store is under construction at the corner of Wilroy and Suburban Drive. Dollar General communications specialist Kelsey Layre said the store will be open in the late summer, but there is no exact date because of uncertainty about how weather will affect construction.
“It was just to better serve our customers,” Layre said of the company’s decision to build there. “We know convenience is a major factor in their shopping decisions.”
Dollar General customers typically come from a three- to five-mile radius around the store, she added. Nearby businesses with large numbers of employees, as in the Wilroy Industrial Park, were also an influence, she said.
The typical Dollar General store is about 7,200 square feet and employs six to 10 people, she added.
