Dollar General is investing a lot of dollars in Washington County.

The bargain retail chain opened another store in the county last week, at 1969 Jefferson Ave., Canton Township – known locally as Wolfdale. The Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based company now has 17 locations in the county, plus one each in Monessen and Belle Vernon.

Dollar General offers convenient shopping for a wide range of essential items, including food, over-the-counter medicines, cleaning supplies, paper products and baby products.

The store in Canton, according to a corporate news release, β€œis expected to employ approximately six to 10 people, depending on the need. Dollar General also continues to hire new full- and part-time employees across its store, distribution and private fleet networks.”

According to the company website, 75% of U.S. residents reside within five miles of a Dollar General.
