The small community of Genoa, Arkansas is moving up to the big time by getting a big new Dollar General store. Construction is well underway at the store located on East Highway 196. 

Even though I don't know the official date for the store opening, when talking with some of the construction workers, they said it could be next month or even early June before the store is ready. One things for sure residents in the Genoa area will not have to travel all the way into Texarkana to buy what they need, which of course is a real inconvenience when you live that far out of the city limits.

Dollar General specializes in name brand products and merchandise at affordable low prices. With more than 14,000 stores across 44 states, Dollar General makes shopping hassle free by delivering low prices on household items, food, home decor, seasonal items, family clothing and more. Dollar General also has their own brand which many items are only a $1.00.

This fast growing chain of stores has been in busy since 1939 and not only delivers great quality to the consumer but also offers the opportunity for new jobs when a new store opens its doors.
