EAST ALTON — Dollar General recently completed a remodel of its store at 620 Berkshire Blvd.
A company executive says the new format provides a fresher layout, wider aisles and new look.
“Dollar General is committed to delivering a pleasant shopping experience that includes a convenient location, a wide assortment of merchandise and great prices on quality products,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We hope our East Alton customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s recently remodeled location.”
Dollar General stores provide national name brands and private brands of food, housewares, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health/beauty products. The store’s new layout is designed to make shopping simple. Seasonal products are displayed in the center of the store, departments are easily recognizable with visible signage and coolers are conveniently located at the front of the store.
At the cash register of every Dollar General store, customers interested in learning how to read, speak English or get their General Education Diploma (GED) can pick up a brochure with a postage-paid reply card that can be mailed in for a referral to a local organization that offers free literacy services. Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $100 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping nearly 6 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
