Dollar General Market opens its doors in the old Winn-Dixie building at Mtn. View Plaza Cathy Benson

Dollar General Market opened last week in Mountain View Plaza in Troutville in part of the space that once housed the Winn-Dixie grocery store.

The new enterprise opened Thursday, June 7. The parking lot stayed filled most of the weekend with the curious and the dedicated bargain shoppers.

According to the press release, Dollar General is the nation's largest operator of general merchandise stores with over 8,000 stores in 35 states. A grand opening for the Troutville store scheduled for Saturday, June 16 at 8 a.m.

The store has over 14,000 square feet of retail space and 21,175 square feet total.

The Dollar General Market features wider aisles and almost 10 times the cooler space for food than the average Dollar General Store. It also features fresh produce, a meat section and many aisles of canned goods. It has the same items found in the regular Dollar General Stores throughout this area, placing groceries and everyday household items, basic clothing and personal and beauty items in one location.

“The Dollar General Market brings even more of the products our Troutville neighbors need every day at value prices, all together in one convenient location,” Senior Vice-President Wayne Gibson said about the Troutville location.

The new store has added approximately 40 jobs to the local economy
