Dollar General opens newest North Country store in Morristown
MORRISTOWN — Dollar General has opened a store at 3712 State Highway 37.
The new location includes the company’s new on-trend home décor and an expanded party preparation selection.“At Dollar General, we believe the addition of each new store provides positive economic growth for the communities we proudly serve, and the addition of our new Morristown store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes great prices on quality products in a convenient location,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We look forward to welcoming customers to our new store and hope they will enjoy shopping at our new location.”
Dollar General plans to create new jobs in the Morristown community as the store is expected to employ approximately six to 10 people, depending on the individual needs of the store.
Dollar General stores provide area residents with a convenient store location to purchase household essentials including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, hygiene products, baby items and more.
To commemorate the opening of the new Morristown location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. Through the partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 100,000 books across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.
Also, the addition of the Morristown store opens the opportunity for schools, nonprofit organizations and libraries within a 15-mile radius of the store to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants.
