Do you know about Dollar General?

I moved from Colorado to Arkansas few years ago and until then had never seen a Dollar General and still never shopped there. I moved to a small town in Rural Arkansas and I am at Dollar General almost everyday. I love the place (the closest place to buy anything else is 20-30 minutes away)

  • I swear by dollar general. They are the cheapest place to get OTC medicines like tylenol and ibuprofen (when you get the generics).

  • I know of Dollar General. We have a Family Dollar, basically the same thing. I live in rural WV and like you, the nearest place to shop elsewhere is a 20 minute drive. That store is a life saver!

  • Dollar General is like on every corner where I am from and where I live. Fred's is also a great is Rose's and Family Dollar. You can get great items for your kitchen there and the Dollar Store (everything there is really just a dollar) and it's quality is nice for presentation (doesn't look cheap)
