Dollar General mulling a Halltown location, will decide by late summer

A new Dollar General store could come to Halltown sometime in the not too distant future. The national retail chain is considering putting a location in the town at the southeast corner of Highway 266 and North Dogwood Drive (Highway Z).
Angela Petkovic, a media representative for Dollar General, said a decision as to whether or not the store would be built could come sometime this summer.
“At this time, we are currently in due diligence phase for a new Dollar General in (Halltown), Missouri that would be located off Highway 266,” she said. “This means we are reviewing the opportunity to add a new store in the area, but we have not committed to doing so just yet. Based on our current timeline, we anticipate to have a final decision on this by late summer 2019.”
Petkovic said the chain takes a number of factors into account when deciding where to build a new store.
“When choosing store locations, meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority,” she said. “The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice. We know convenience is a major factor in our customers’ shopping decisions as we generally serve customers within a three to five-mile radius, or 10-minute drive. We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration.”
Petkovic also added that a typical store covers about 7,300 square feet and employs six to 10 people. She added that if the store is built in Halltown, locals can expect to be able to enjoy a shopping experience that combines convenience with a wide variety of products.
