Excavation has begun in the village of New Auburn at the site of a “potential” future Dollar General store. A company representative said on Monday, Aug. 24, that a decision to open a store in New Auburn had not been finalized. “At this time, we are still in our due-diligence phase for a new location in New Auburn, Wisconsin. This means we are reviewing the opportunity to add a new store in the area, as well as securing permits in order to potentially open a new store, but a decision has not been finalized at this time,” said Mary Kathryn Colbert, of Dollar General public relations via email on Monday. Dollar General has been expanding in the area: a new store is slated to open in Cameron in September of this year and the company recently opened a store in Ridgeland. Dollar General stores employ approximately six to 10 employees, depending on the needs of the store. The stores carry foods, health and beauty products, home cleaning supplies, housewares, stationary, seasonal items and basic clothing.
