Dollar General to Open in Earlimart

South Tulare County residents will soon have another retail option in the unincorporated community of Earlimart.

The nation’s newest Dollar General is set to open its doors at the White River Plaza located at the northeastern corner of Avenue 56 (Sierra Highway) and CA State Route 99, in Earlimart, CA.

The construction of the 9,100 square feet building is complete, the shelves are being stocked, and the final details are being completed prior to the opening.  The new Dollar General store will be officially open to the public on Saturday, February 15, 2014, according to Bob Munoz, the District Manager of Operations for Dollar General.  A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for 8 a.m. with prizes, store giveaways and food.

“Dollar General has more retail locations in the United States than any other retailer with over 11,000 stores in 40 states from coast to coast,” said Michael Washam, Tulare County Economic Development Manager.  “The new store will offer shoppers the products they use and replenish most frequently, such as packaged foods, snacks, pet supplies, health and beauty aids, cleaning supplies, paper products, basic apparel, housewares and seasonal items.”
