WILMINGTON — The private developers of Wilmington’s public-private Riverplace project announced today that it has secured a lease with DGX, a more upscale spin-off of the ubiquitous Dollar General store.

According to East West Partners, DGX is a ‘smaller urban market concept of Dollar General, and will “feature everyday household items typically found in convenience stores, as well as an extensive selection of produce and other perishable groceries, a prepared foods section and selective alcohol products.”

DGX is aiming to get the 5,200-square-foot space open in September. The location will join stores in Nashville, Raleigh, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Atlanta.

“The River Place store will be located on the first floor, just north of the grand stair connecting Bijoux Park to Water Street, accommodating easy pedestrian access from both Water and Front streets,” according to East West Partners.

East West Partners Senior Managing Partner Lucien Ellison noted that the “attention to aesthetic and urban blending of the DGX brand will fit well into River Place and be an amenity for downtown residents, employees and visitors, alike.”

DGX will join fellow commercial tenants Bank of America, Mellow Mushroom. Axis Fitness, and Nutrition Spot, a “healthy smoothie eatery.”
