Dollar General - The Rural Customers' Wal-Mart

How Dollar General Became Rural America's Store Of Choice

Not an investor but intrigued -  DG quote / M / WMT /


  1. I would look closely at their trajectory vis-a-vis the boys from Bentonville. Whether they can continue growth really depends on how many more towns are too small for a Wal-Mart, but far enough from Wal-Mart to support a smaller retailer.

    Personally, I can't stand the place because the trash:treasure ratio is too high.

  2. I was in some "Dollar" store (not sure which one) once.

  3. We have a new store about 5 minutes from our house, and regularly shop there. The nearest grocery store is about 15 minutes away.
