The Dollar General store located at 4593 S. M52, in Stockbridge, Mich., was closed during the week of July 19, 2020, to accommodate the store’s remodeling. It reopened on Thursday, July 23. The store renovations have doubled the cooler space and enabled the store to expand its offerings, including a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Lisa Rocca, manager at the Stockbridge Dollar General, looked forward to this remodel opportunity. It was originally planned for May but was postponed due to the coronavirus. Some of her customers have been nervous about having to leave the local area to shop during the pandemic. Dollar General’s new product offerings, including produce, should help to reduce customer dependency on large grocery stores.
