Dollar General Opens Its Doors on Detroit Avenue

The building got a major overhaul this summer, and the business in the middle of downtown recently opened.

Just in time for the holidays, Dollar General recently opened its doors in downtown Lakewood.

On Saturday afternoon, the city’s newest dollar store at 15311 Detroit Avenue was bustling.

A major overhaul to the building — that most recently housed CVS Pharmacy before it moved a couple blocks west — began during the summer and recently wrapped up.

Among the upgrades were a new façade, new front and rear doors, a new parking lot, tuck pointing and new lighting.

What do you think of the new Dollar General? Tell us in the comments.

Time for all you Negative Nellie types to weigh in on the decline of Lakewood and how the wrong kind of people shop here

Stopped at this new store today and it was bright and clean and well stocked. There are some good buys. But remember this is not the store that everything is one dollar. This store has items of all prices. Think it will be a very handy place to shop.

prices are NOT that cheap! Banquest fried chicken $7.75, almost same as Giant Eagle(as opposed to Save alot at 5.75); not great selection. Unfortunately, dollar trees nearby are not as good as east side ones, and no freezer section.

The store has a lot of great deals! Especially since its christmas time. I haven't seen any 7 dollar banquet meals, that's way over dramatic. A nice add to lakewood!
