Okay, show of hands here...who has ever shopped or at least purchased one item from Dollar General?

I know that I have in the past but I forget what the items were. I'm not that great of a shopper in any store because I know what I'm going for and I basically run in and out. What I do know about Dollar General is that there has always been a lot of people in there shopping and as the name implies, you can get a lot of items and not have to pay a lot for them.

This may be the very reason that they are doing so well. In fact, according to WNEM-TV 5, Dollar General will be opening 1,000 new stores in 2020. This is a unique situation because as we all know and have seen, a lot of what they call "brick and mortar retailers" (places that you have to go to and shop) are closing due to sales moving to the internet.
