ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — A new Dollar General store opened its doors in Vinton on Monday, Dec. 19.

The new convenience store can be found at 10624 Stewartsville Road and, according to Dollar General’s media team, features affordable needs from household products to fresh produce.

According to a release, the store’s produce selection offers the top 20 items traditionally sold in a grocery store and covers about 80 percent of produce options. The new location will also have home décor and party decoration selections.

“We look forward to welcoming customers to our new store and hope they will enjoy shopping at our new location,” said Matthew Simonsen, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. 

To celebrate the opening of its new stores, Dollar General is partnering with the Kellogg Company to donate a hundred books to local elementary schools. They say this donation will be part of a plan to donate more than 60,000 books across the country in the fiscal year of 2022.

“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 Vinton store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes great prices on quality products in a convenient location,” said Simonsen.
