MENOMINEE—The Dollar General (DG), located at 3500 10th St., is now open.

DG stores are proud to provide area residents with an affordable and convenient store location to purchase household essentials including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, hygiene products, baby items and more. In addition to the national- and private-branded products DG carries, the Menominee location includes the company’s home décor and an expanded party preparation selection.

To commemorate the opening of DG’s new Menominee location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. Through the partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 100,000 books across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.

Furthermore, DG also supports literacy and education initiatives through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The addition of the Menominee store opens the opportunity for schools, nonprofit organizations and libraries within a 15-mile radius of the store to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants.
