Dollar General Corporation will return to the state where it all started to celebrate the opening of its 9,000th store, at its newest location in Fountain Run, Ky. This milestone further distinguishes Dollar General as the retailer with the largest number of company-owned stores in the United States.

"The opening of our 9,000th store is an exciting time for the Dollar General family, and I would like to thank our 80,000 employees for all they do every day to help us keep growing and serving our customers," said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General's chairman and CEO. "As the company has evolved and expanded over the decades, we've remained true to our mission of serving others and our everyday low price model. We look forward to what the future holds as we continue to serve the needs of our customers in communities throughout the country."

The first Dollar General store opened in Springfield, Ky. in 1955. The company now has 9,000 stores in 35 states.

The simplicity that defined Dollar General's past is the engine that drives the company's success today. Dollar General remains committed to its mission of serving others and carries out this mission by providing convenience and value to all customers, in addition to supporting local communities.
