Dollar General, an American variety store chain, operates more than 16,000 locations in 44 states across the U.S. The discount retailer saw its business grow during the pandemic, in which a weak economy and high unemployment helped accelerate momentum for the country’s “largest small-box retailer.” As a result, the company’s growth has brought lots of attention to Dollar General and its deep-discount competitors, which continue to open new stores at remarkable rates. A recent report revealed that in 2021, nearly half of all stores opening in the United States are new Dollar General locations.
