Dollar General boasts “12,000 stores and growing,” and that growth has covered Jones County. Construction is set to begin on what, by our count, in the 20th Dollar General store in Jones County. The newest store will be on Susie B. Ruffin Avenue in Laurel, near its intersection with Chantilly Street. Fulcrum Construction Group is building the store, where dirtwork has been done but wet weather has held up the process. A new Dollar General just opened near Moss on Highway 15 North last month. There are six Dollar Generals along Highway 15/16th Avenue, from Glade to Moss, and five along Highway 11, from Sandersville to Eastabuchie. There are two along Highway 84 East and two along Highway 84 West, one in Soso, one in Sharon, one in North Laurel and one in Ellisville.
