VAIL MILLS -- The Broadalbin and Mayfield area celebrated the grand opening of its Dollar General store Saturday at 111 Bellen Road.

The opening kicked off with free prizes, special deals and a $10 gift card to the first 50 shoppers. Also, the first 200 shoppers received a Dollar General tote bag and other related goodies.

This is the first Dollar General store in the Broadalbin area. Before the store opened, local residents looking for deals on household items such as groceries, cleaning supplies and seasonal products would have to travel to similar stores Amsterdam, Gloversville or Johnstown.

Amsterdam resident Shelly Janeski accompanied her father, Arthur Conrad of Broadalbin, to the store's grand opening. Janeski and her dad were pleased about the store's new location.

Before it opened, Janeski's father would have to travel to Amsterdam to pick up his vitamins and other essentials at a Dollar General store on Guy Park Avenue. Now he doesn't even have to leave town.

"They have very good prices," said Conrad.

According to a news release issued by the company, a traditional Dollar General employs around six to 10 people, depending on the need.

"Dollar General is committed to delivering a pleasant shopping experience that includes a convenient location, a wide assortment of merchandise and great prices on quality products," said Dan Nieser, Dollar General's senior vice president of real estate and store development. "We hope our Broadalbin customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General's new location."
