I never knew what a great deal these store were until one opened less than a mile from my home. I had not previously shopped at a Dollar General Store.
One day, a friend called and said she was on her way to my home.......... I hung up the phone and remembered that I had forgotten her birthday a few days earlier. Now what am I going to do, I thought. I have nothing to give her and she never forgets my birthday. I zipped down to the Dollar General Store and luckily found a nice gift. I purchased a gift bag and tissue paper to make the gift pleasantly presentable to the birthday girl. There was a lot to choose from here at the Dollar General. She loved her gift and Dollar General saved me "face".
I have since, made Dollar General my "quick stop" for whatever I need in a hurry.
I also treat my granddaughters to after school treats here now. They love the Dollar General too.
