Fast-growing chain Dollar General Corp. has opened its first two stores providing the combined offerings of a DG Market and pOpshelf, in the Nashville, Tenn., area. The stores are located at 2907 Highway 31 West, in White House, and 4491 Lebanon Pike, in Hermitage.
As of May 2021, the retailer is planning to develop approximately 25 Dollar General and pOpshelf combination stores.
Dollar General first revealed the pOpshelf concept in October 2020. Dispensing with Dollar General’s signature bright-yellow branding, the new retail store offers the vast majority of its items at $5 or less, with the aim of making the shopping experience “fun” and “affordable.” Since its launch last year, pOpshelf has opened 16 stores in three states. Stores are currently under construction in Mobile and Foley, Ala., and Aiken and Columbia, S.C. Dollar General is planning up to an additional 50 pOpshelf locations in various markets by the end of fiscal year 2021.Progressive Groce
