Inlet Beach residents say Dollar General doesn’t fit

Representatives of Dollar General commented to The Sun via email stating:

"Dollar General is committed to serving our neighbors by providing everyday low prices in a small, easy-to-shop, convenient format. We are offering shoppers in Inlet beach a value alternative. Our prices are on par with the supercenters and are roughly 20% better than an average grocery store and 40 percent better than an average drug store. Dollar General has a well-regarded reputation for exemplary corporate citizenship, and we intend to reinforce our long history of giving back to the communities served by our stores.

"This parcel of land where our proposed store will be located is commercially zoned. Dollar General has worked diligently to comply with local codes and building requirements in Inlet Beach and accommodate reasonable concerns. Both in Florida and across the 40 states Dollar General operates in, we are thoughtful and respectful of community concerns. With its nearly 75-year history grounded in the small town of Scottsville, Ky., Dollar General understands the unique needs of customers and provides great values on products customers use and rely on every day in compact retail locations."

The project is set to come before Walton County 's Design Review Board in September.
