I absolutely love new stores and was excited to check out Dollar General! We took a family road trip to Montclair and enjoyed the 40 minute ride by singing along to our favorite songs. Chris questioned the drive but I told him that the store would be worth it. We pulled into the shopping center and I immediately noticed that there weren't carts all over the parking lot and the front of the store was clean. Having a management background, I'm critical of these little details - these factors are important, it's all about a great first impression.
The minute we walked in, we were greeted and I knew I would love this store!!! Just like the outside, the inside of this store was impeccable and well stocked. I went down every single aisle and was impressed with the wide selection of products - bacon, queso fresco, whoopee cushions, trail mix, ground beef, steaks, gift cards, batteries, glasses, towels, school supplies, books... I can keep going on!!! I spent a good hour shopping and taking it all in! The prices are fantastic - I found Dollar General's brand Clover Valley Pure Vanilla Extract for $2.50, Luzianne Family Tea Bags 24 count $1.95 (at other stores are $3), Mr. Bubble $2 (at other stores $3).
I really enjoyed shopping at Dollar General, I felt like I was getting the most out of my money. The store was well organized and offered something for everyone. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I would seriously drive 40 minutes to have a great shopping experience again.
