Galax is set to get a second Dollar General Store, and grading work for the site has already begun on South Main Street.
Recently, a former restaurant building and a car wash were torn down on South Main, making way for the new store.
Dollar General’s public relations manager, Crystal Ghassemi, says that the new store will open in the spring.
Galax City Manager Keith Barker confirmed the plans for Dollar General, but noted that construction is still in its early stages.
