Dollar General adds produce to PB store

Dollar General announces it recently remodeled its store at 713 N. University Drive in Pine Bluff and now offers produce in addition to the other categories, brands and products it normally has.

“At Dollar General, we strive to be a positive business partner and good community neighbor in Pine Bluff,” said Matthew Simonsen, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “Although we are not a grocery store, we believe the addition of produce in our Pine Bluff store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes affordable prices on quality products in a convenient location.”

Dollar General’s produce section includes tomatoes, onions, apples, strawberries, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lemons, limes, salad mixes, and more, according to the release.

The company currently offers produce in more than 4,400 stores and plans to offer the foods in more than 10,000 stores in the coming years, with several in current food deserts defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
