A new Dollar General store opened in Astoria today at 35-27 31 Street.
The store, the seventh to open in Queens, sells low-priced snacks, food, cleaning supplies and apparel, among other items.
The Astoria location is one of 12,500 Dollar General stores nationwide. It joins other Queens locations, such as stores in Ridgewood, Glendale, College Point and three in Jamaica.
The new Astoria store is having an official granding opening promotion on Saturday, Nov. 4, and will give the first 50 adult shoppers a $10 store gift card, with the first 200 shoppers a Dollar General tote bag filled with product samples and giveaways. The store opens at 8:00 am.
The store is expected to employ six to 10 people. There are some positions still available. Those interested are advised to go to Dollar General’s website at www.dollargeneral.com
