Today, we announced the reopening of our Dollar General store in Porter, Oklahoma after having to close it down last year due to a fire. This store was an important part of the community and over the past few months, we worked with United States Senator Jim Inhofe and town leaders to rebuild it and bring back an expanded Dollar General to the city. As we open the doors to this store once more, we are also presenting $10,000 in local donations, comprised of a $5,000 donation to the Porter Fire Department and a $5,000 donation to Porter Consolidated Schools. We’re committed to continue #ServingOthers and being a good corporate neighbor to our local communities.
