Oh?

When Alive reported in October 2019 about a Dollar General — er, excuse us, DGX — coming to Columbus Commons, we received some blowback from folks involved who insisted that even invoking the Dollar General name in discussing the Downtown addition was an error on our part. Because Dollar General and DGX are completely different.

″[Dollar General] approached us. ... At first we were a little hesitant, but then we visited the Nashville [DGX] store and saw how nice it was, and we made sure the word 'Dollar' wasn’t used on the signage because we didn’t want it to appear to be a dollar store,” said Alex Marsh, vice president of real estate firm the Robert Weiler Company. “It’ll all be under the DGX branding.”

Anyway, a colleague recently snapped this photo.
