A new Dollar General is coming to Byron. In fact, according to RGI Group, they broke ground and are building as we speak. Or as I type. Whatever. In September DG opened its 16,000th store in Panama City, Florida (FLORIDA!). A little before that they announced their expanding to 46 states overall, so its not a surprise to hear another one is coming to the area.

Currently, there are 11 Dollar General stores within 50 miles of Rochester, and during Bucky Beaman's regular market update (every Thursday on his Instagram) the construction looked like it was pretty early in the process.

Originally from Byron, but now in Kasson, Lean Patricks says she is excited...she shops at the Kasson store all the time.
