Pleasant Grove Dollar General Opens

Store is third Dollar General in the county


The new Dollar General store in Pleasant Grove is now open. It is located at 28402 Hwy 14.

The location offers household essentials including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, hygiene products, baby items and more. In addition to the typical national and private branded products, the new Pleasant Grove location includes the company’s new home decor selection and an expanded party preparation selection. According to the Dollar General app, store hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

“At Dollar General, we believe the addition of each new store provides positive economic growth for the communities we proudly serve, and the addition of our new Pleasant Grove store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes great prices on quality products in a convenient location,” said Matthew Simonsen, Dollar General s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We look forward to welcoming customers to our new store and hope they will enjoy shopping at our new location.” 

To commemorate the opening of DG ‘s new Pleasant Grove 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.

Furthermore, DG strives to be a good neighbor and is committed to the communities it proudly calls home, evidenced by support of literacy and education initiatives through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, Simonsen said. The addition of the Pleasant Grove 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.

Dollar General plans to create new jobs in the Pleasant Grove community as the store is expected to employ up to 10 people, depending on the individual needs of the store. 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.
