Getting fresh: Grocery and food options are growing in La Marque. Dollar General last week completed renovations and unveiled its DG Market concept in its 914 Bayou Road store. The DG Market concept offers fresh produce and meat, along with Dollar General’s typical merchandise. Look for more DG Markets in the county.
Dollar General in 2021 announced plans to offer fresh produce in more than 10,000 stores in coming years, reports Mandy Woodburn, public relations specialist for La Marque Economic Development Corp. DG Markets offer the top 20 items typically sold in grocery stores and about 80 percent of produce categories carried by most grocers, Woodburn said.
