COLUMBUS GROVE — Dollar General will celebrate the grand opening of its new location in Columbus Grove this weekend.
The retail store, located at 723 S. Main St., will offer free prizes and special deals beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday. Additionally, the first 50 adult shoppers at the store will receive a $10 Dollar General gift card and the first 200 shoppers will receive a Dollar General tote bag, among other giveaways.
“Dollar General is committed to delivering a pleasant shopping experience that includes a convenient location, a wide assortment of merchandise and great prices on quality products,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We hope our Columbus Grove customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new location.”

Dollar General offers both name-brand and generic merchandise that includes everything from food, houseware and seasonal items to cleaning supplies, basic apparel and health/beauty products. According to the company, it is among the largest discount retailers in the United States.
Although it has the word “dollar” in the name, it is not a dollar store by the strict definition of that term, as most of its products are priced at more than $1. However, goods are usually sold at set price points in the range of 50 cents to $60.
