Fans of Dollar General stores likely know the routine by now. Be among the first 50 adult shoppers on opening day and you'll get a $10 Dollar General gift card. With that in mind, look for a line to develop close to showtime on Saturday, August 27th when Dollar General celebrates the opening of its new location at 67633 M-152 in Dowagiac.
The store will open at 8am that day with free prizes, special deals, $10 gift cards for the first 50 adult shoppers and a free Dollar General tote bag for the first 200 shoppers into the store that day.
The new Dollar General will offer Dowagiac residents and others nearby a convenient new place to shop for everyday essentials at law prices.
