Goodlettsville, TN — Dollar General Corp. is constructing three locations in Washington and Wyoming, giving the discount retailer presence in 46 states, the company reports.

Centralia and Cathlamet, WA, and Pine Bluffs, WY, will host Dollar General store grand openings in early fiscal year 2020, the retailer reports. Each new store is anticipated to bring in six to 10 new jobs. To date, the company operates nearly 16,000 stores and has approximately 140,000 employees.

Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice-president of real estate and store development, says: “We believe the addition of each new Dollar General store presents positive economic growth for the communities we serve through the creation of local career opportunities, and the ability for customers to purchase affordable, quality items in our easy-to-shop, small-box format. We look forward to being a long-standing business partner in each of the communities we serve and to welcoming new customers into our stores when these projects are completed next year.”
