Which Retailers Plan to Build the Most Stores?


question-mark1a (1)Not all retailers are trimming back their brick-and-mortar footprints.

Dollar stores and off-price chains, taking advantage of solid sales and bargain-hunting shoppers, are on an expansion kick, claiming half the spots on a list of 10 retailers adding the most new store square footage, according to commercial real estate and analytics firm CoStar.

Dollar General, second overall, led a trio of dollar stores in CoStar’s top 10, based on retailers’ announced U.S. store openings as of the second quarter of 2016.

Dollar General, which started the year with nearly 12,500 stores, has announced plans to open 900 more this year and another 1,000 in 2017. Last week, the chain said it’s looking to hire 10,000 new employees by mid-October.
