Dollar General acquires Wal-Mart building in Hillsboro

Dollar General announced today it has completed the purchase of the former Wal-Mart Express location at 605 Orchard Drive in Hillsboro.

Dollar General anticipates relocating an existing store location into the purchased site by October 2016. This is one of 41 former Wal-Mart Express locations across 11 states the major discount retailer purchased.

“Dollar General is excited to add these locations to our existing store base,” said Todd Vasos, chief executive officer. “We look forward to the opportunity to better serve our customers in these communities by continuing to provide the convenience and value they expect from Dollar General.”

Company officials say communities served by the newly relocated store will enjoy a fresh DG16 layout with additional sales floor square feet, complete with expanded offerings such as fresh meat and produce, all designed to make shopping easier for customers.

Hillsboro is one of 37 locations where Dollar General intends to operate the fueling stations.
