Dollar General Eyes California For Growth
With more than 10,000 stores already in operation, Dollar General Corp. sees opportunities for close to 11,000 more, including more than 1,000 in California, Rick Dreiling, chairman and CEO, told investors in Late June. He said the company operates 10,100 stores in 40 states. Dollar General anticipates tremendous growth from its entry into California, Dreiling added. “California for us will be as large as Texas someday, and we have over 1,000 stores in Texas.” The company expects to open 50 stores in California this year, he said.
