The sign on front of the new Dollar General store in Schram City shouts "coming soon," and that "soon" means this week.
The new 9,221-square-foot retailer will be open by Friday morning, Nov. 22, according to store manager Wendy Gregg, who has been with Dollar General for 15 years. Employees have been stocking the 7,368-square-foot sales floor since last Thursday.
"Food is going to be our main thing," Gregg said of the grocery aisles that cover as much as a third of the sales floor. "We have 34 cooler doors."
Regular hours will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. when the new store opens, and a grand opening celebration will be planned for December.
