Dollar General Corporation operates as the country' s largest small-box discount retailer with stores in the southern, southwestern, midwestern, and eastern United States. The stores are typically located in local neighborhoods and small communities deemed too small for big-box retailers. Dollar General offers both name-brand and generic merchandise including off-brand goods and closeouts of name-brand items. Although it has the word dollar in the name, Dollar General is not a dollar store. Many of its offerings are priced at more than one dollar.
