GENTRY -- Dollar General announced that its new DG Market, located at 900 J.R. Bever Blvd. in Gentry (just south of the post office), is now open!

The new DG Market store format features an expanded selection of fresh meats, fruits and vegetables, as well as the same categories, brands and products customers trust Dollar General to carry.

"We are excited to provide Gentry residents with our new DG Market format and look forward to welcoming customers to our new location," said Matthew Simonsen, Dollar General's senior vice president of real estate and store development. "At Dollar General, we are committed to serving our customers with a pleasant shopping experience and strive to be a good corporate citizen. The new DG Market format aims to provide the Gentry community with closer access to fresh and healthier foods and a convenient location to purchase the items they want and need at everyday low prices. We hope our customers will enjoy the new store."

To help commemorate the opening of DG's new Gentry location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. In partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 60,000 books in fiscal 2022 across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.

DG stores are proud to provide area residents with an affordable and convenient store location to purchase household essentials, including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, hygiene products, baby items and more through its mission of serving others. In addition to the national and private branded products customers trust Dollar General to carry, the new Gentry location includes the company's new stylish, on-trend home décor and an expanded party preparation selection.

Dollar General plans to create new jobs in the Gentry community as the store is expected to employ approximately 15-17 people, depending on the individual needs of the store. Individuals interested in joining the DG team may review available positions and apply online at www.dollargeneral.com/careers.

The company provides employees with competitive wages, world-class and award-winning training and development programs and benefits, including day-one telemedicine eligibility and Dollar General's Employee Assistance Foundation -- as well as health insurance coverage options, 401K savings and retirement plans, tuition reimbursement, paid parental leave and adoption assistance to eligible employees.

Furthermore, DG strives to be a good neighbor and is committed to the communities it proudly calls home, evidenced by its unwavering support of literacy and education initiatives through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

The addition of the Gentry store opens the opportunity for schools, nonprofit organizations and libraries within a 15-mile radius of the store to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants. Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $216 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 15.4 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
