Coming Soon: Dollar General on Belcher Road

Construction of discount retail chain Dollar General's new location in Dunedin is nearly complete.

The latest discount retail chain store to join the Dunedin landscape is nearly complete.

The up-and-coming Dollar General at 1260 Belcher Rd., near the corner of State Road 580, is constructed with faux windows that give it an upgraded, neighborhood feel when compared to the architecture style of the chain's base model. 

Landscaping and road improvements were also made. The 9,100-square-foot store, which the city approved in October, is slated to receive interior work before it opens, possibly within the month. 

Dollar General is also building at 1326 San Christopher Dr., where it replaces a boat and RV storage lot.

Dunedin has one other Dollar General Store at Causeway Plaza. The stores carry school supplies, beach items, toys, toiletries, dog and cat food, clothing, accessories, food items and seasonal decorations at prices between $1 and $10.

The national retail chain is looking to expand by 600 to 800 stores in Florida this year.

So that means Four similar stores selling similar goods all within a two mile radius of each other. Sounds yuckie to me :-(

It's very sad that this is the best we can do with prime property in Dunedin. And so close to each other in our little burg. Too bad. Too bad.

Discount Dunedin.

By the time they are all completed we will have THREE Dollar General Stores with a Dunedin address - a bit of overkill, don't you think?

I'm really disappointed.

Why would we need another Dollar General??? There is also one on Highland and Sunset Point in Clearwater which is still very close to Dunedin's Southside. So with San Christopher That would make 4 in a few mile radius. We also have Family Dollar Dollar Tree and several other smaller Discount/bargain store in town. Please, no more! I'd rather see the old storage lot, it was less of an eyesore than another Discount Dollar store.
