Name brand items aren’t in demand like they were before, and budget or store brands are becoming more popular due to affordability.

Dollar General has had success in keeping sales high in 2022, despite inflation.

While loyal customers are sticking to Dollar General, others are shopping there more.


Here are three big changes Dollar General will put into place

The store plans to add more locations to its list, which currently has 17,000 in 46 states.

That means more stores than Walmart, Target, Costco, Aldi, Best Buy, and Kroger all combined, according to The Sun.

Dollar Tree in comparison only has 16,000 stores in the U.S.

By the end of 2022 there are plans for 1,100 new stores to be open.

In addition, the store will go international, opening 10 new stores in Mexico.

Not only are they opening more stores, they’re making their current ones bigger.

800 of the 1,100 new locations will be 8,500 square feet compared to the regular 7,400 square feet most stores are.


Finally, the third biggest change will be even more private label products.

There are 24 store brands total.

They sell their own brand of detergent, shampoo, energy drinks, and even office supplies.
