    In this article DGA sign inside a Dollar General store in Chicago.Jim Young | ReutersDollar General CEO Todd Vasos said Wednesday that the retailer is chasing business opportunities in health care for a simple reason: About 65% of the company's stores are located in "health deserts." That translates to more than 10,000 stores — including many in rural areas and small towns — where customers must drive long distances to get medical care, Vasos said. He said the retailer is in a prime position to change that. "While it's in its infancy stages, we really have an opportunity to grow that health-care side of the business — not only products in the store, but services," he said at a virtual conference hosted by Barclays. Dollar General recently announced plans to expand into the health-care industry. In July, the deep discounter said that it had hired its first chief medical officer and planned to add more health-related items to shelves, from dental supplies to cold and cough medication. However, the company has provided few details about what its offerings may look...

    VIDEO3:5603:56Dollar store stocks tumble after earnings — Two ways to trade the groupTrading Nation Dollar store stocks are feeling the heat. Heavyweights Dollar Tree and Dollar General reported earnings this week that disappointed investors, with Dollar Tree's stock falling to lows not seen since November 2020. The companies cited ongoing supply constraints and said they expected more freight and transportation issues in the coming months. While other retail companies have been able to pass higher costs onto their customers as inflation creeps higher, dollar stores are a stark exception, Chantico Global founder and CEO Gina Sanchez told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Thursday. "Margins have been expanding unless your whole value proposition is 'We sell stuff cheap,' and that is the whole Dollar General, Dollar Tree story," she said. "As we see these freight costs rising and inflation generally hitting their inventory, they're not able to pass it through and it just makes it more of a struggle." As consumer spending begins to move away from budget-consciousness, the dollar stores could be entering a difficult phase, said Sanchez, also chief market...

    New York (CNN Business)Three dollar store chains will make up almost half of all the new stores opening up in the United States this year, a reflection of the dollar store sector's outsized growth in the retail industry as other chains close shops or stop building new ones.About 45% of the 3,597 store openings that large retail chains in the United States have announced so far this year are from Dollar General, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar, according to the latest figures from Coresight Research, a firm that aggregates the numbers from company filings and press releases.These openings are a continuation of dollar stores' rapid growth even before the pandemic. Economists and retail analysts say dollar stores are expanding in part because of growing wealth inequality in the United States and the hollowing out of the middle class. The share of American adults who live in middle-income households decreased from 61% in 1971 to 51% in 2019, according to Pew Research Center. "We've seen a bifurcation in the economy," said Ken Fenyo, the president and head of advisory and research...

    A sign inside a Dollar General store in Chicago.Jim Young | Reuters Dollar General is doubling down on brick-and-mortar by building bigger stores and expanding Popshelf, a new chain aimed at higher-income, suburban customers. On Thursday, the discounter laid out aggressive plans for the fiscal year that called for the company to open 1,050 stores, remodel 1,750 sites and relocate 100 others. As it builds new stores, shoppers will see larger sales floors and more merchandise. They'll also notice more branding for Popshelf, which the retailer debuted in the fall. The company is testing both new locations and using the brand to create a store within a store.

Its same-store sales rose by 16.3% in the fiscal year.

    Spencer Platt/Getty Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Back in 2002, after two years of bankruptcy proceedings, a North Carolina pillow manufacturer hired a Reebok executive named David Perdue to right the ship. For Pillowtex, Perdue’s experience with outsourcing jobs was part of the appeal. (“I spent most of my career doing that,” he admitted later in a deposition.) He was a cost-cutter. He was a winner. And, with few options, at the end of 2002 Perdue indeed helped develop a four-year plan, according to a Charlotte Observer investigation, to fix the firm. It’s key recommendation: “wiping out most of Pillowtex’s U.S. jobs.” But in the end, Perdue’s plan to aggressively market pillows and textiles while moving jobs overseas failed. Executives blamed the overall death of industry that loomed on the horizon; in 2005, the United States would finish phasing out its quota on textile imports, allowing freer trade and less protection for local manufacturers. But that wasn’t the only impediment. There was also Perdue himself. ...

    BLAIR, Neb. (AP) — Dollar General plans to build a new $85 million distribution center in eastern Nebraska. The 800,000-square-foot facility in Blair will employ about 400 people after it opens in early 2022. The facility will handle both dry goods and fresh items that are sold by the discount retailer. The company said it picked Nebraska for the new distribution facility because of its proximity to its stores and the local business environment, including incentives the community offered. The facility will serve roughly 1,500 stores across the region. Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts said the new distribution center will boost the economy in Blair and add to recent job growth in the area. Dollar General said it currently has 17 dry goods distribution centers and eight fresh food distribution centers across the country. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    With online shopping and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, “brick-and-mortar” stores in Illinois are struggling to survive, but dollar stores continue to be a success story. Dollar Tree, Family Dollar and Dollar General continue to expand, especially in rural areas. Dollar General was the top chain for new locations in 2019, and 75 percent of its outlets were in towns with a population under 20-thousand. It has grown to over 16,000 outlets last year with 135,000 employees. There are 89 Illinois cities that are home to Dollar General outlets. Dr. Chris Merrett from the Institute for Rural Affairs at Western Illinois University in Macomb, calls it a “counter-intuitive business model”, especially for Dollar General, with 42 percent located in rural areas. “We were very worried about the retail apocalypse, right?” Merrett said. “Malls closing, big box stores closing, and yet despite all of those closures, Dollar General has continued to grow.” Even in poor rural areas, a Dollar General moving in can be a mixed blessing. Sometimes they are filling a vacuum left by other stores closing up...

    (CBS/CNN) — Dollar General, the retail powerhouse known for its rock-bottom prices, is opening a new store aimed at higher-end suburban shoppers. The company is launching its first two Popshelf stores in Nashville in the coming weeks, and plans to open another 30 by the end of next year. Dollar General has Massachusetts locations in Brookfield, Carver, Dracut, East Wareham, Lanesboro, New Bedford, Pittsfield, Sheffield and Westminster, as well as 10 stores in New Hampshire. The new stores are opening at a difficult time for retailers — especially brick and mortar stores that were forced to close during the pandemic. But Dollar General has been well positioned as a bargain store at a time of economic uncertainty for millions of Americans. The discount chain of more than 16,000 stores saw sales at stores open at least a year climb 18.8% during the second quarter, which ended July 31. The company noted it “continued to experience elevated demand in its stores.” The company’s stores, which were deemed essential, have remained open throughout the pandemic.

    Unlike many retailers, Dollar General has proved largely immune to the coronavirus' devastating impact on brick-and-mortar stores. Now the discount chain is shrugging off the pandemic to launch a new line of stores geared to less budget-mind shoppers. The Tennessee company said Thursday that it will debut the new store concept, called Popshelf, with two locations opening near Nashville on October 29. It plans to have about 30 locations in various markets by the end of 2021. Unlike Dollar General, which mostly sells necessities including food, snacks and cleaning supplies, Popshelf will sell beauty products, home decor, party supplies and other discretionary items. Still, the emphasis will remain on affordability — most products will sell for $5 or less. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox The new chain's target audience will initially skew female, with the outlets located in suburban markets with household incomes ranging from $50,000 to $125,000.
