Dollar General to open in Vilas
A new Dollar General will soon be constructed next to the
Quality Plus gas station on U.S. 421 in Vilas.
Grading already has begun at the site, and the Watauga County Planning and Inspections Office issued a building permit for the project Wednesday morning, said director Joe Furman.
Jacklyn Dees, communications specialist for Dollar General, said the new store will be a typical Dollar General and expects to employ between six and 10 people.
No date has been set for construction or opening, Dees said.
Dollar General recently replaced its Boone store with a new location on U.S. 421 near New Market Center. Dollar Generals also are located in Jefferson, West Jefferson, Banner Elk and Newland.
