NEW HARTFORD — Nationwide store chain Dollar General is considering opening a store in New Hartford, according to company spokesperson Angela Petkovic.
Currently, there are 13 Dollar General locations in the state, including stores in Torrington and Barkhamsted.
Petkovic wrote in an email to The Winsted Phoenix that the company is currently in its due diligence phase and would be opening its store on Main Street.
“This means we are reviewing the opportunity to add a new store in the area, but we have not committed to doing so just yet,” Petkovic wrote. “Based on our current timeline, we anticipate having a final decision on this in the coming weeks.
Petkovic added “Our customers are at the center of all that we do, and meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority when choosing store locations. In selecting store sites, we consider several factors, carefully evaluating each potential new store location to ensure we can continue to meet our customers’ price, value, and selection needs. We further strive to provide convenience for customers who may not have affordable nearby retail options.”
The store, if opened, would employ six to 10 employees, according to Petkovic.
Meanwhile, the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission is scheduled to meet on Wednesday, March 24 at 7 p.m.
However, Dollar General is not listed on the meeting’s agenda.
