Dollar General opens new location in Five Points
On Wednesday, Dollar General announced its store at 27104 US Hwy 431 in Five Points is now open.
“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 Five Points store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes great prices on quality products in a convenient location, ” Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development, said in a press release. “We look forward to welcoming customers to our new store and hope they will enjoy shopping at our new location.”
To commemorate the opening of DG’s new Five Points location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. Through the partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 100,000 books across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.
Dollar General plans to create new jobs in the Five Points community as the store is expected to employ approximately six to 10 people, depending on the individual needs of the store.
The company provides employees with competitive wages, world-class and award-winning training and development programs and benefits including day-one telemedicine eligibility and Dollar General’s Employee Assistance Foundation, as well as health insurance coverage options, 401K savings and retirement plans, tuition reimbursement, paid parental leave and adoption assistance to eligible employees.

DG stores provide area residents with an affordable and convenient store location to purchase household essentials including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, hygiene products, baby items and more. The new Five Points location includes the company’s new stylish, on-trend home décor and an expanded party preparation selection. Normal hours of operation may be found through the Dollar General app.
Furthermore, DG strives to be a good neighbor and is committed to the communities it proudly calls home, evidenced by support of literacy and education initiatives through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The addition of the Five Points store opens the opportunity for schools, nonprofit organizations and libraries within a 15-mile radius of the store to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants.
