The Mankato Chamber of Commerce and Jewell County Community Development (JCCDA) hosted a Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting for the new Dollar General location in Mankato on Thursday, January 14, 2016.
JCCDA was an integral player in getting Dollar General to build a location in Mankato. JCCDA assisted in selling their land to the corporation and making the other necessary arrangements for them in the community, as well as handling the press releases about the new store.
The store manager reported an average of 100-150 sales transactions a day. That is a remarkable number for this community and JCCDA is excited to report on the increased tax revenue once those numbers are in.
