Dollar General To Begin Construction On First New Concept Store This Fall

Dollar General DGX Exterior

Dollar General is developing a smaller format store, tentatively branded DGX, to serve metropolitan shoppers with “everyday low prices on the essentials they need in a convenient, easy-to-shop format,” according to the company.

Construction of the first concept store, which will be located at West End at the corner of 21st Avenue near downtown Nashville, is slated to begin later this fall with a grand opening scheduled for early 2017. The Goodlettsville, Tennessee-based retailer also plans to open a similar DGX concept store in Raleigh, North Carolina, in early 2017.

DGX is expected to have approximately 3,400 s.f. of sales floor space and offer customers more items geared toward immediate consumption, including, for example, a soda fountain, coffee station and grab-and-go sandwiches. Additional items are expected to include a limited assortment of grocery offerings, pet supplies, candies and snacks, paper products, home cleaning supplies and an expanded health and beauty section. Additionally, the store is expected to feature items not typically found in quick-trip stores, including a carefully-edited assortment of home, electronics and seasonal offerings.

The unit also will include a checkout lane for what the company describes as the high-volume, smaller-basket-size store, with the goal of providing a quick and easy check out for customers.
