A new Dollar General is going up in the Branch Community located north of Morton.
Angela Petkovic, Dollar General Public Relations, confirmed, “I’m excited to tell you that Dollar General is currently under construction on a new location at 6787 Highway 481 North in Morton, Mississippi. At this time, a Grand Opening is slated for Spring 2018, but understand that construction progress may alter this date.”
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.  “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,” Petkovic said. “We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration.”
A typical Dollar General store employs six to 10 people, depending on the individual needs of the store.
