Dollar General Pouring Into Beer and Wine Biz

Discount retailer Dollar General Corp. has begun selling beer and wine in some of its stores in the Southeast, the Associated Press reports.

The Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based company has sold food and drinks for years in its 9,000 stores in 35 states — along with everything from home decor items to health and beauty supplies and apparel.

Dollar General spokeswoman Tawn Earnest said the company expects to eventually offer beer or wine in half its stores, but declined to say where the stores already selling alcohol are located.

“The company is exploring opportunities in locations where there is a customer demand,” Earnest said in a release.
