Dollar General to expand into Idaho, its 47th state

GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. — Dollar General is expanding into Idaho, with a store that is set to open by spring 2022. The store, under construction in Athol, Idaho, will expand the retailer’s territory to 47 U.S. states.

“Dollar General is committed to helping customers save time and money on everyday essentials, and we look forward to bringing our convenience and value to Idaho shoppers,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “In addition to providing affordable access to Idahoans, we are equally excited to create new career opportunities for local residents. We look forward to welcoming new customers into our first Idaho store when the project is completed early next year and to continue serving customers and communities through our mission of Serving Others.”

The store will be located in Kootenai County, not far from Spokane, Wash., in Idaho’s panhandle. Dollar General extended its reach to 46 states in 2020, with the opening of its first stores in Washington and Wyoming. As of July 2021, Dollar General operated more than 17,600 stores, and said that approximately 75% of the American population currently lives within five miles of a Dollar General store.
