Dollar General Store to open new store in Evensville by Spring/Summer

Evensville, Tennessee– Residents of Evensville will soon have a shorter distance to travel to purchase some necessary items they may need. Dollar General Corporation will soon have a new additional store located at 13585 Rhea County Highway in Evensville.

Dollar General Corporation is a United States  chain variety stores headquartered in Goodlettsville, Tennessee. Dollar General operates over 11,500 stores in 40 US States. According to Dollar General spokesperson Crystal W. Ghassemi the  anticipated opening date will be in late spring.

When choosing store locations, meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority. The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice said,  Ghassemi. We know convenience is a major factor in our customers’ shopping decisions as we generally serve customers within a three to five mile radius, or 10 minute drive.  We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration.

Anyone interested in joining one of America’s fastest-growing retailers may apply for positions online at and positions for this store should be available for applications this spring.

Dollar General gives its customers more than everyday low prices on basic merchandise as part of its mission of Serving Others.  Dollar General is deeply involved in the communities it serves and is an ardent supporter of literacy and education through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, which awards approximately $12 million each year to nonprofit organizations, schools and libraries within a 20-mile radius of a Dollar General store or distribution center to support adult, family, summer and youth literacy programs. Since its inception in 1993, the DGLF has awarded more than $100 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping nearly six million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.  For more information about the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and its grant programs, visit

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation also supports customers interested in learning how to read, speak English or get their General Education Diploma (GED).  At the cash register of every Dollar General store, customers may 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. On behalf of Dollar General Stores we are looking forward to being in the neighborhood of Evensville, Tennessee.
