Dollar General has just begun the permitting process to open a store between Brookview and Collier Heights at 2750 Donald Lee Hollowell Pkwy, less than three miles away from the planned mixed-use development currently under construction at Quarry Yards.
The store will replace a former CVS which has been up for lease for over a year and will have $250,000 worth of conversion work ahead, including indoor and outdoor painting and signage, and interior conversion, according to permits.
At 12,655 square feet, the planned discount retailer will take up much more space than a traditional store which typically comes in between 7,300-9,000 square feet.
Notably, this store, which falls within the Hollowell-MLK Tax Allocation District, will be the only Dollar General in the Northwestern quadrant of the city, west of highways 75 and 85, inside the 285 and north of I-20.
Besides the location off Buford Hwy and a planned, compact store at that Hanover Midtown Tower, most other Dollar Generals are staked below the East-West highway.
Dollar General’s corporate website lists only one official location for Atlanta proper at 3509 MLK Jr. Drive.
A contractor with the project confirmed with What Now Atlanta over the phone that they are in the beginning stages of the permitting process and do not have a construction or opening timeline in place.
