Dollar General plans mid-2015 opening in ML


Ground has been broken and the countdown has begun for the opening of a Dollar General Store in Maple Lake.
The store is slated to open at 800 Hwy. 55 W., at the corner of the highway and Spruce Street, in about a year.
“The store is currently trending for a grand opening celebration in mid-2015, but please note construction progress may alter the exact date,” said Dollar Genearl Public Relations Manager Crystal Ghassemi.
As of press time, the building permit had yet to be approved.
A traditional format is planned for the store, with a building footprint of about 9,000 square feet, including about 7,400 sales square footage.
As for why the retailer with more than 11,000 stores in 40 states chose to build in Maple Lake, Ghassemi said, “We look for places were we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice.
