Dollar General completed the purchase of 41 former Walmart Express locations across 11 states. The Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based retailer anticipates relocating 40 existing Dollar General stores into the purchased sites by October and entering the fresh foods market as part of the purchase. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.   
“Dollar General is excited to add these locations to our existing store base. We look forward to the opportunity to better serve our customers in these communities by continuing to provide the convenience and value they expect from Dollar General,” says Todd Vasos, chief executive officer.
Communities served by the newly-relocated stores will enjoy expanded offerings such as fresh meat and produce.
