GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. – September 7, 2021 – Dollar General is excited to announce it recently remodeled and updated its store at 1803 Knight Ave. Suite J in Waycross to provide combined offerings of a DG Market and pOpshelf. The store plans to celebrate its official grand opening on Saturday, September 18 beginning at 7 a.m. with free samples, prizes and special giveaways including $10 gift cards to the first 100 adult shoppers and tote bags for the first 200 shoppers.
“We are thrilled to enhance Waycross customers’ shopping experience with our new DG Market + pOpshelf store-within-a-store concept,” said Tracey Herrmann, Dollar General’s senior vice president of channel innovation. “Through this combined format, customers will find the same products they know and trust from Dollar General along with new merchandise from pOpshelf. We look forward to welcoming the Waycross community into our remodeled store.”
