"Dollar General stores have been a part of the Birmingham community for four decades. The new facility is an investment in the continued growth of the community, and the location is a great strategic fit for our company's expansion plans."
The company expects to break ground in May and open the facility in February 2012. It will serve 500 retail stores in Alabama and other states. Dollar General currently operates 498 stores in Alabama.
