Dollar General is currently under construction at its new location, 4151 Highway 15 in Shelbyville.
Senior Manager Katie Ellison, Dollar General Corporation Public Relations said via email on Friday, August 5, 2022, “At this time a store opening is slated for winter 2023 but understand that construction progress may alter this date.”
Ellison said the store will employ approximately six to 10 employees, depending on the individual needs of the store.
“Our customers are at the center of all that we do, and meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority when choosing store locations,” Ellison continued, “In selecting store sites, we take a number of factors into consideration, carefully evaluating each potential new store location to ensure we can continue to meet our customers’ price, value and selection needs.
“We further strive to provide convenience for customers who may not have affordable nearby retail options.”

Rumors in the community are also circulating about a possible Dollar General location in Clarence.
“At this time, we are currently in due diligence phase for a new Dollar General location in Clarence, MO.
“This means we are reviewing the opportunity to add a new store in Shelby County, but we have not committed to doing so just yet. Based on our current timeline, we anticipate having a final decision by winter 2023,” said Ellison.
Dollar General gives its customers more than everyday low prices on merchandise as part of its mission of Serving Others.
