As the fast-growing company prepares for the grand opening of the new North Broad Street store this Saturday, Dollar General executives also are scouting other potential sites for store relocations. We’ve seen several in our area already, including Cave Spring, and another is in active review at this time with a final decision expected by this fall. For now, the potential site is undergoing due diligence.
