The newest Dollar General in Dade County held its grand opening ribbon cutting Friday, April 9, and has been open since March 21.

County Executive Ted Rumley and Dollar General Store Manager Lori Robinson cut the ribbon at 10 a.m., officially marking the opening of the new store. Dade County Commissioners Robert Goff and Melissa Christiansen Bradford, Deputy Director Carey Fauscett-Anderson, Dollar General District Manager Ashley Simpson, and members of the Alliance for Dade were on hand to show their support.

Rumley welcomed everyone and related the history of the site. Goff, who grew up on Sand Mountain, spoke to how important it is to have a store in the community, and thanked Dollar General.

“This is a special day here on Sand Mountain,” Rumley said. “The community and [Commissioner] Phillip Hartline worked on this for a long time to find a place to put this store here on the mountain. It was about a year process. When you see Phillip, pat him on the back, and all the other commissioners that were involved.”

“We want to thank Dollar General for coming to this part. We’re just a stone’s throw from Alabama. This will be welcomed to all the people in this area. This is a dear place to me. This is my old stomping grounds,” Goff said.
