A Dollar General representative confirmed today the company is considering adding a store in Angel Fire.

“We are currently in due diligence phase for a new Dollar General … that would be located off Mountain View Boulevard,” spokesperson Angela Petkovic wrote in response to a Chronicle inquiry. “This means we are reviewing the opportunity to add a new store in the area, but we have not committed to doing so just yet. Based on our current timeline, we anticipate to have a final decision on this by late fall 2018.”

Among other considerations, Petkovic wrote, the company reviews “demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns” before making a decision.

If a store is built, Petkovic noted, it “would employ approximately 6-10 employees, depending on the individual needs of the store. Anyone interested in joining one of America’s fastest-growing retailers may apply for available positions online at dollargeneral.com/careers.”
