GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. — Dollar General announced its plans to expand its operations to California in 2012.
The California announcement comes on the heels of the company’s planned expansions into three new states in 2011 — Connecticut, Nevada and New Hampshire. California would be Dollar General’s 39th state.
The company said it plans to serve shoppers in rural, suburban and metropolitan markets.
“Our California stores will mark a significant milestone for Dollar General, giving us a coast-to-coast presence for the first time,” said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General chairman and CEO. “Our team is excited about carrying our mission westward and delivering value and convenience, our hallmarks for over 70 years, to new customers.”
