A new Dollar General store has opened at the corner of South Transit and Dunnigan roads in Pendleton.
The "soft opening" occurred last week, and the formal grand opening ceremony is scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday. The first 50 adult shoppers that morning will receive a $10 Dollar General gift card, and the first 200 shoppers will receive a Dollar General tote bag containing product samples.
Dollar General has more than 13,600 stores in 43 states, including 77 stores within 50 miles of Buffalo, according to the company's website. Stores average six to 10 employees, the company said.
