Mount Ulla residents reject possible Dollar General store - Salisbury Post

DG

A developer of Dollar General stores is considering building at the intersection of Back Creek Church Road and N.C. 801. Because the site is zoned rural agriculture a new store requires votes by the county Planning Board and Rowan County Board of Commissioners for rezoning to commercial use. Mary Kathryn Colbert, of Dollar General, said the company is in its “due-diligence phase” for a new store. The Rockwell store received county commissioner approval last month, but at each juncture in recent years, Dollar General store proposals across Rowan County have seen local opposition. Several others spoke about safety concerns if a store is built on Back Creek Church Road. Some were also worried about an increase in crime. Others said that although the store would bring nine jobs and $80,000 in tax revenue to the county, it’s not worth it to “ruin what’s Mount Ulla.”.

Dollar General's Earning Miss: Don't Let It Fool You

DG

Dollar General's Earning Miss: Don't Let It Fool You. Investors didn't like that Dollar General(NYSE: DG) missed analyst estimates in its fourth-quarter earnings report, nor did they care for the weak guidance the deep discounter issued. Even though the company reported higher sales and robust comparable-store sales growth that exceeded expectations, shares of the dollar store tumbled 10% on the report. But by focusing only on the impact and not why it's occurring, investors are missing the fact that Dollar General is investing in its future, building up its competitive strengths while also helping to keep rivals at bay. Unlike rival Dollar Tree and its Family Dollar chain, Dollar General is increasingly competing against grocery giants like Walmart and Kroger, as well as discount chains Aldi and Lidl. For years, Dollar General has operated a string of DG Markets stores that carry a broad assortment of fresh produce. Last year it launched another initiative called Better for You, which introduced more-healthful food items into over 2,500 stores. And since it continues to believe the number of freezer cases it installs also boosts sales, it will be installing thousands of new freezers this year across its entire store base, helping Dollar General offer greater product selection, potentially driving higher traffic and likely increasing sales as well.

Is It Finally Time to Buy Dollar General Stock?

DG

Shares of Dollar General (NYSE: DG) recently dipped after it posted a mixed fourth quarter. Reported earnings per share fell 30% to $1.84 and missed estimates by a nickel. But excluding some big tax benefits from the prior-year quarter, its EPS went up 24% annually. Dollar General expects its same-store sales to jump 2.5% in fiscal 2020, its revenue to grow 7% to $27.4 billion, and for its EPS to climb 7% at the midpoint to $6.30-$6.50. Dollar General struggled with peaking store traffic throughout most of fiscal 2018, but it offset that weakness with bigger average transactions per customer. However, customer traffic and average transactions both rose during the fourth quarter, thanks to the early release of government SNAP assistance (formerly known as the Food Stamp program) for low-income households.
