A new store in Timbo is set to become a retail hub for western Stone County and eastern Searcy County after opening its doors Dec. 6.
Following a quick construction period, Dollar General launched its new store with a “soft opening” on Monday. The 10,000 square-foot facility is the chain’s second largest prototype and one of the largest stores in the region according to store manager Aubren Baker. The store is located at at 7427 Highway 66.
“Our customers are at the center of all that we do, and meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority when choosing store locations,” Dollar General public relations coordinator Emma Hall said in a statement. “In selecting store sites, we take a number of factors into consideration, carefully evaluating each potential new store location to ensure we can continue to meet our customers’ price, value and selection needs. We further strive to provide convenience for customers who may not have affordable nearby retail options.
The store will employ 6-10 people, as determined by the individual needs of the store. Anyone interested in joining the store’s retail staff may apply at dollargeneral.com/careers.
The Timbo store will offer name-brand and private brand merchandise such as foods, health and beauty products, home cleaning supplies, housewares, stationery, seasonal items and basic clothing. The store has one aisle of industrial coolers for cold food and is designed to accommodate produce sales in the future.
Baker said store hours are set for 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
The Tennessee-based Dollar General recently opened its 18,000th store.
