Construction work has begun on a new Dollar General in the town of Gerry.

Located at 4041 Route 60, the store will employ six to 10 workers, a company spokesperson confirmed. At present, Dollar General is eyeing a fall 2023 opening, though the company said “construction progress may alter this date.”

Work at the site kicked off about a month ago.

Once open, it will be the second Dollar General store located within Gerry, with the other at 5817 Jamestown St., just outside the village of Sinclairville.

“Our customers are at the center of all that we do, and meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority when choosing store locations,” the company said in a statement. “In selecting store sites, we take a number of factors into consideration, carefully evaluating each potential new store location to ensure we can continue to meet our customers’ price, value and selection needs. We further strive to provide convenience for customers who may not have affordable nearby retail options.”

According to county records, The Broadway Group purchased the 2.1-acre lot where the store is being built this year. The sale price was listed at $216,000.

Dollar General currently has 23 stores in Chautauqua County.
