Area residents will soon have another shopping option — Tennessee-based Dollar General plans to open two stores this fall in Plumas County.
Dollar General will open 7,000-square-foot stores in Chester and Quincy, and expects to employ eight to 10 people at each location.
The company, which boasts 10,000 stores nationwide, targets rural areas. The stores offer name brand products at reduced prices.
Company spokesman Dan MacDonald said that Dollar General is not to be confused with Dollar Tree.
“About 20 percent of our items are $1 or less, while 80 percent is not,” he said.
MacDonald said that Dollar General could be best described as a small box store. “Our prices are about comparable to Wal-Mart, but our stores are smaller,” he said.
