HOPKINTON -- A new Dollar General at 2776 state Route 11B is now open.

Dollar General will celebrate the store’s official grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 23 at 8 a.m. with free prizes and special deals. 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,” Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development, said in a Tuesday news release that was nearly identical to one published Monday announcing the opening of a different Dollar General in Colton. “We hope our area customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new location.”

Dollar General sells food, housewares, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health/beauty products.

Traditional Dollar General stores employ about six to 10 people, depending on the need, the release says.
