Dollar General has opened a new store on Bells Ferry Road near Woodstock.
“At Dollar General, we believe the addition of each new store provides positive economic growth for the communities we proudly serve, and the addition of our new Woodstock store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes great prices on quality products in a convenient location,” Dollar General’s Senior Vice President of Real Estate and Store Development said in a news release. “We look forward to welcoming customers to our new store and hope they will enjoy shopping at our new location.”
In addition to the standard products Dollar General carries, the new Woodstock location at 6719 Bells Ferry Road, Suite 100 includes the company’s new home décor line and an expanded party preparation selection. Normal hours of operation may be found through the Dollar General app.
