Another dollar store is heading to California.
Dollar General Corp. will open 50 stores and a distribution center in the Golden State this year as part of a national 625-store expansion.
The first location – in Montclair in San Bernardino County – is slated to open in February, to be followed by new stores in Victorville, Colton and Palmdale. The company may open as many as two dozen stores in Southern California this year, company spokeswoman Tawn Earnest said in an email.
The Goodlettsville, Tenn., chain, which operates about 9,800 stores nationwide, plans to concentrate on the central and southern regions of California, bringing an estimated 1,300 jobs to the state.
