New Dollar General store opens in Cape Coral
GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. – Dollar General this week announced the opening of a new store at 921 S.E. 10th St. in Cape Coral.
DG stores provide area residents with an affordable and convenient store location to purchase household essentials including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, over-the-counter medicines, hygiene products, baby items and more through its mission of “Serving Others.”
In addition to the national and private branded products Dollar General carries, the new Cape Coral location includes the company’s new stylish, on-trend home decor and an expanded party preparation selection. Normal hours of operation may be found through the Dollar General app.
To commemorate the opening of DG’s new Cape Coral location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. Through the partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 100,000 books across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.
The addition of the Cape Coral store opens the opportunity for schools, nonprofit organizations and libraries within a 15-mile radius of the store to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants. Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $197 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 14 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.

Dollar General plans to create new jobs in the Cape Coral community as the store is expected to employ approximately six to 10 people, depending on the individual needs of the store. The company provides employees with competitive wages, world-class and award-winning training and development programs and benefits including day-one telemedicine eligibility and Dollar General’s Employee Assistance Foundation, as well as health insurance coverage options, 401K savings and retirement plans, tuition reimbursement, paid parental leave and adoption assistance to eligible employees.
