The new Dollar General in West Frankfort is open for business as of a soft opening on Jan. 28.
The store will celebrate its grand opening this coming Saturday.
The store, located at 1008 E. Main St., will begin its celebration at 8 a.m. Saturday “with free prizes and special deals” a news release says. There will also be $10 gift cards to the first 50 people who come through the door.
The West Frankfort City Council voted unanimously in 2017 to provide tax incentives for the development of the store. Mayor Tom Jordan said at the time that he had been in talks with Glenwood Equities LLC for several years before sealing the deal for the city.
The tax increment finance agreement the board approved was not to exceed $150,000 over five years.
