A new Dollar General store location will open in Brookfield Oct. 4 South of their current location.

The new location will feature more space, more coolers and freezers, an upgraded parking lot and new items for sale.

Dollar General store manager Shannon Bergfield found out in early 2018, Dollar General would be receiving a new location. The new location is set to open in two weeks just South of McDonald’s.

According to Bergfield, the new location will have more available to the community. The store will feature 22 coolers and freezers, an expanded grocery section, an upgraded parking lot and more space.

Employees at Dollar General will start moving over to the new store Sept. 27. The store is set to open Oct. 4 with a grand opening celebration coming afterward. The current location will be open during the moving prior to Oct. 4. The old Dollar General will close for good Oct. 3 at 5 p.m.

Bergfield says her employees make the difference.

“I have the nicest staff in town, we have very personable employees,” Bergfield said.

Bergfield has worked for Dollar General for five years. She has been the store manager at the Brookfield location for two years. After moving to Brookfield, Bergfield says the community has been very welcoming to her.
