Recently, the store at 1217 U.S. Highway 45 N. in Eldorado, underwent a renovation to update its layout and expand its offerings, according to a company executive.

"We hope our customers enjoy the fresh layout and design, as well as the new product assortment including produce and expanded food assortments."

The Eldorado store's new layout is designed to make shopping simple for customers, Nieser said. Seasonal products are displayed in the center of the store, departments are easily recognizable with visible signage and coolers are located at the front of the store, he said.

In addition, the company says it's committed to serving its communities.

Dollar General is a supporter of literacy and education. At the cash register of each of its stores, customers interested in learning how to read, speak English or prepare for their high school equivalency test can pick up a brochure with a postage-paid reply card that can be mailed in for a referral to a local organization that offers free literacy services. Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $146 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping nearly more than 9 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
