FULDA — The Fulda community will soon welcome a new Dollar General store at 2355 Minnesota 62, just outside city limits.

The location was chosen in an effort to meet customer needs, said Dollar General PR representative Angela Petkovic.

"The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice as we generally serve customers within a three- to five-mile radius, or 10-minute drive," she said.

Between six and 10 jobs will be needed to staff the new store.

Petkovic said Dollar General will contribute to the community through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, "which awards grants each year to nonprofit organizations, schools and libraries within a 20-mile radius of a Dollar General store or distribution center to support adult, family, summer and youth literacy programs." The foundation has award more than $172 million in grant money to date.


There is no firm opening date for the new Dollar General, but a grand opening is slated for sometime this fall.
