SALISBURY, Md. - Officials announced on Wednesday that a Dollar General will be coming to Salisbury.

According to a Dollar General spokesperson, officials are working to bring a Dollar General to 234 Tilghman Road. The store is set to open by late fall.

The store will reportedly employ about 6-10 people, depending on individual needs of the store. Officials say that anyone interested in applying can go here.

Officials with Dollar General say, "When choosing store locations, meeting customers' needs is Dollar General's top priority.  The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice.  We know convenience is a major factor in our customers' shopping decisions as we generally serve customers within a three to five mile radius, or 10 minute drive.  We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration.

Dollar General sells quality name-brand and private brand merchandise such as health and beauty products, home cleaning supplies, housewares, stationery, seasonal items and basic clothing. We also sell an assortment of packaged foods, as well as some refrigerated foods and frozen foods.

In addition to high quality private brands, all which carry a 100% satisfaction guarantee, Dollar General sells products from America's most-trusted brands such as Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark, Unilever, Kellogg's, General Mills, Nabisco, Hanes, PepsiCo and Coca-Cola.

Dollar General gives its customers more than everyday low prices on basic merchandise as part of its mission of Serving Others.  Dollar General is deeply involved in the communities it serves and is an ardent supporter of literacy and education 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.

Since its inception in 1993, the D.G.L.F. has awarded more than $135 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 8.6 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.  For more information about the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and its grant programs, visit
