DG opens in former Save A Lot

SOUTHERN INDIANA — A new Dollar General store has opened at 624 State St. in New Albany in the former Save A Lot building. Normal hours of operation may be found through the Dollar General app.

A news release said the DG will offer its normal products including cleaning supplies, paper products, hygiene products, grocery items and over-the-counter medicines and will also feature a “curated assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables including lettuce, tomatoes, onions, apples, strawberries, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lemons, limes, salad mixes, and more.”

To commemorate the opening of DG’s new New Albany location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. Through the partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 100,000 books across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.

Dollar General plans to hire six to 10 people, depending on the individual needs of the store.
