A new Dollar General is now open in Tyler at 15809 Highway 31 East.
The new edition is providing residents with an affordable and convenient store location to purchase household essentials including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, hygiene products, baby items and more through its mission of serving others.
In addition to the national and private branded products customers trust Dollar General to carry, the new Tyler location includes the company’s new stylish, on-trend home décor and an expanded party preparation selection.
Normal hours of operation may be found through the Dollar General app, according to Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development Matthew Simonsen
“At Dollar General, we believe the addition of each new store provides positive economic growth for the communities we proudly serve, and the addition of our new Tyler store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes great prices on quality products in a convenient location,” he said. “We look forward to welcoming customers to our new store and hope they will enjoy shopping at our new location.”
To commemorate the opening of DG’s new Tyler location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade.
In partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 60,000 books in fiscal 2022 across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.
DG strives to be a good neighbor and is committed to the communities it proudly calls home, evidenced by unwavering support of literacy and education initiatives through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
The addition of the Tyler store opens the opportunity for schools, nonprofit organizations and libraries within a 15-mile radius of the store to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants. Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $219 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 16.1 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
