Dollar General opens new branch in Havana

As of December 20, a new Dollar General store has opened just outside of Havana.

Located on the corner of Shady Rest Road and Highway 27, the new Dollar General store will be the third to serve the Havana area.

This new store will provide the same household items, such as food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, health and hygiene items, and baby goods, that other Dollar General stores offer to shoppers.

In addition, shoppers to the Shady Rest Dollar General will find an extended selection of party-supplies.

The store will also be rolling out a new selection that is being offered by Dollar General stores around the country: fresh produce.

According to the store, the new branch will provide an assortment of fresh fruit and vegetables, including lettuce, tomatoes, onions, apples, strawberries, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lemons, limes, salad mixes, and more.

“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 Havana store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes great prices on quality products in a convenient location, ” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We look forward to welcoming customers to our new store and hope they will enjoy shopping at our new location.”

A new Dollar General branch has opened in Havana, making this the third to service the Havana area.
