Second Dollar General location on the rise

A second Dollar General Store could open locally by late winter, just a few miles down the road from the company’s existing Owenton location.
Groundwork has already begun on the new location, which will be located at 20 Sweet Owen Road, the former site of Hunter’s Greenhouse off Highway 127 North, according to Dollar General spokeswoman Laura Somerville.
The company purchased the land from Gary and Darlene Hunter for $225,000 earlier this year, according to Owen County Clerk Laurel Stivers.
