In Rose Hill, KS the dollar general closed it's small store & took over a closed wal-mart family market & it is a full grocery store with gas. Only Dollar General I have seen with gas pumps. Don't know if wal-mart left all the coolers but it looks like it but was not in it as family market.

After reading the title, I just imagined everything being past the sell by date. Interesting that they could sell ANYTHING fresh for a buck.

You are dreaming if you think anything is cheap in a DG. I don't think anything casts $1 in there. In 3 years I have visited the DG I mentioned before twice. Although close I can't see it and don't use it.

I’ve never seen a DG grocery store. I do use DG a lot for 1 or 2 grab and go items when I don’t want to fight the crowd at WM or Kroger.

I compared some of our basic items with the Walmart and Kroger prices. DG beat them every time, even on the name brand stuff. When we use the coupons we can get our fave laundry detergent for $2-3 less than Walmart and $3.50 less than Kroger. We don't have an Aldi's nearby so DG has been our go-to for a lot of items.

Some of my favorite DG finds have been kitchen items. I bought silicone spatulas and basters at 5 for only a $1.00 there about a month ago.

Instacart now delivers from Family Dollar. Odd but makes sense.

We joke about it, but it seems like there is one within a couple of miles of all the campgrounds we go to. Seems like we always need something, or forget something and have to make a run to the General.

there is one right here and another in each direction less than 10mi away. They are multiplying like rabbits.

I read an interview several years ago with the CEO of Dollar General / Family Dollar; he clearly stated that his strategy for competing with Walmart was to put a dollar store on every corner. Looks like he's succeeding.

When we are down in Florida on the "forgotten coast line" the closet Walmart is 80 miles. But, there are several DG close by. Every small town seems to have one even when there is no regular grocery store.
