Batesville Dollar General adds produce

Feb. 1—BATESVILLE — Dollar General recently remodeled its store at 11 Saratoga Drive in Batesville and now offers produce in addition to the items customers have come to expect.

"At Dollar General, we strive to be a positive business partner and good community neighbor in Batesville," said Matthew Simonsen, Dollar General's senior vice president of real estate and store development. "Although we are not a grocery store, we believe the addition of produce in our Batesville store highlights our commitment to deliver a pleasant shopping experience that includes affordable prices on quality products in a convenient location."

Dollar General's produce set offers the top 20 items typically sold in traditional grocery stores and covers approximately 80 percent of produce categories most grocery stores carry.

It will include fresh fruits and vegetables including tomatoes, onions, apples, strawberries, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lemons, limes, salad mixes, and more. The store will also continue to offer frozen and refrigerated food offerings, in addition to the same categories, brands and products that customers are accustomed to Dollar General to carry.

A news release from the company notes that Dollar General strives to be a good neighbor and is committed to the communities it proudly calls home, as evidenced by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The Batesville store provides the opportunity for schools, nonprofit organizations and libraries within a 15-mile radius of the store to apply for Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants.
