After sign goes up, Dollar General confirms move

As late as earlier this week, Dollar General still wasn’t confirming the move of one of its two Galesburg stores, despite social media word.

Then, a sign went up, and the move was official.  A spokesperson for the Tennessee-based company tells WGIL via e-mail that the store at Main and Seminary Streets is moving a few blocks east, to the site of a former Family Video near Main and Grand, right across the street from a competitor, Family Dollar.

On Monday, the company had said it was still doing its due diligence on a potential move, after first saying during the winter a move was being considered.

The company, however, would not provide a specific moving date, only saying the move would be final in late Spring, once construction is done.

In a statement, a spokesperson say they take customers’ needs into consideration when making a move, and want to provide convenience for customers who may not have other options.

The Family video at that location closed late last year, while a second location remains open on East Losey.

Dollar General also has a Galesburg location near Henderson and Fremont Streets.
